“Come on, Molly,” my mom shrieked, “or we are going to be late to pick up Tori. Did you even get out of bed yet?”
I thought to myself, oh man, I fell back asleep! I f I had known how funny my trip to my grandma’s house in New Jersey would be, I would have gotten up extra early.
Finally we picked up Tori and headed to New Jersey. Little did I know how long the car ride was going to be. My brother, Ben, was crying and whaling his arms in my face the whole time! when we finally pulled into my grandmothers driveway I jumped out, because after three and a half hours in the car with a screaming child you tend to want to bolt out of the car and into a quieter environment. In excitement to be out of the car and see my grandma I ran around the the corner to find her with hose in hand. My first instinct was to run because i thought she was gong to squirt me with her blue slimy hose. After running around the house into the kitchen I was pretty much exhausted. As I walked in and screamed, “She’s a crazy...” My voice cracked at the smell of delicious pancake, and finished quietly, “woman.”
Later as I was talking to Tori i said, “I told you my grandma is crazy,” and put a huge stack of pancakes as big as my head on my plate.
“she isn’t crazy!” Tori exclaimed. “I think you’re the crazy one.”
The time I spend with my grandma isn’t a lot so when I do get to spend time with her I cherish it forever. Most of our memories are super funny and my whole family laughs at them to this day. Im looking forward to more memories I get to make with my grandma in New Jersey.
