I received the following email in my inbox this morning:
Just wanted to tell you that “I know” and all is right with the world…. I will love you forever…Grandma”
Thaaaaaaat’s right. Apparently my grandma and my mom had a conversation last night which went something like this, according to my mother’s reenactment:
Grandma: Um. I think I know something.
Mom: What do you mean? What do you think you know?
Grandma: What do you think I think I know?
[Continue this Who’s on First for a few minutes, until…]
Grandma: …I think [Pom] is a lesbian.
Mom: Oh. Well… you’re right. She is.
So there you have it. The moment of loving, tolerant, progressive understanding that I’d been hoping for. Hurrah!
