Our granddaughter, one of 3 born in 1999, the one who gave us our first great-grandchild 8 months ago, the one who brought a dozen bags of laundry needing done a few hours ago, and is helping the admiral and me with a big order of Olympics cowbells, just a few minutes ago declared, and I quote:

"I think I want to be a realtor. I can work from home, and I just need a computer and stuff"....
facepalm

Seriously, were we that scary way back then?

Well, you have to admit, she's PARTLY correct. She can work from home but it would be difficult with a new baby and having to take the laundry to FR's digs to do it. Then you'd have to drop the kidlet off at Gramp's and Grandma's house when you had a showing to do. Sounds like a royal PITA.

For FR.... quite the dealeo for the Granddaughter. Those showing might take all day, and until after dinner.

"That was always the dream, wasn’t it? ‘I wish I’d known then what I know now’? But when you got older you found out that you now wasn’t the you then. You then was a twerp. You then was what you had to be to start out on the rocky road of becoming you now, and one of the rocky patches on that road was being a twerp.
A much better dream, one that’d ensure sounder sleep, was not to know now what you didn’t know then."
- Terry Pratchett, Night Watch


The first time I read this quote, I took it at face value, and agreed. The older I get, I watch my stepson grow up, he'll be 20 in less than 2 months... I see him being a twerp. But the change is that now I think the meaning of the quote is a little different. Today, it's a way for me to temper my reactions to his missteps. He'll grow up, assuming I did my job right, and stop being a twerp. And with any luck at all, he'll recognize just how big of an asshat he actually is right now, and wish at some future time that he hadn't been.

Same goes for your granddaughter, FR. Good luck!
