Death according to Annie and Ashley

I got in the van after class today to a barrage of questions. Annie wanted to know how old Grandpa Smiff is. I told her. Then we had to know how old Gramma Smiff is. I told her. Apparently Aiden's guesses on the way to pick me up were fairly accurate.

How old is Gramma Laura? I told her. Okay. I waited to see if they could remember the name of any of the grandpa's on Brandon's side. But no. So "how old is Dad's dad"? I don't know. I think he's in his sixties. Older than the other three.

What happened to Dad's stepdad?

He died.

Annie: Oh yeah

Ashley: who killed him?

Mom: No one killed him, he was really old and sick.

Ashley: Why did he die?

Mom: He was really old and his body gave up

Annie: What did he die on? ( I think she meant "of")

Ashley: A bed!! DUH

  1. I am glad to hear that Adian does not have anything emergently wrong with him!!!! I am so sorry that he feels like crap still, there is nothing worse then feeling like crap and having everyone tell you, "you are fine"

    This death story was funny.......hope you are doing well!!!


Tell me something!
