During the recent heat wave I was sitting in the living room with Grandma for a little bit before heading out. I'd convinced her that the air conditioner was necessary because it was nearly 100 degrees out. She sat in her usual spot and said, "Why don't you turn the light on over there?"
"I'm fine. I'm going out in a couple of minutes."
"Put the light on."
"It's fine. I'm leaving soon."
(Muttering to herself and shuffling over to the lamp)"I don't want to sit in the dark. I'll turn it on myself."
Grandma is allowing the air conditioner and two light bulbs to be on? At the same time???
Who is this woman with such blatant disregard for the Con Edison bill? I kinda like her.
