In honor of throwback Thursday I decided to go back and think of my fondest childhood memory…Lord this day was EPIC! We laughed, cried, LAUGHED again…
We were so excited we got all dressed up and Grandma already warned us to behave and not embarrass her if not she would never take us with her again. It was my sister, my cousin and I.
We were heading to Times Square, to a restaurant called Carmines with the OG (that’s grandma by the way the Original Gangsta ♥) The whole ride she warned us again to behave that we better control those giggles! (FYI the more she said it the more we fucking laughed)!!
So we finally get to this place we had been hearing about for two days. We meet up with my grandma’s old boss who in her eyes was like a son to her… He was always so glad to see us and treated us like family! He starts telling us that the food is so good and that we going to enjoy it!
So lets fast forward a bit we eat and we already on our way back home….at this point we are all full, tired and ready for bed. I notice OG is sweating her ass off. I say grandma you sweating a lot… she says “yea this wig is making me hot.” We all look at each other like NO please don’t take it off!!!!!! My cousin begged her to not take it off… ladies and gentleman she took off her wig on the the public MTA BUS!!!!!!!!
My sister and cousin were pale from embarrassment this in turn made my grandma laugh so hard…so here she was dressed to kill with her wig in hand and laughing like a maniac!!!!!!
The bus driver and her were laughing together it was so hilarious and we the kids all had serious ready to die faces.
The irony to me was that she told us a million times that day don’t embarrass me…yet she embarrassed the shit out of us HAHAHAHAHAHA
I HAVE NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN this! This is the best image and memory from my childhood that I have. She didn’t give two fucks what anyone thought and she looked so so so so happy!
MY grandma was such an amazing human..if I could be a third of what she was I’d be so grateful!
