23. No, but my baby brother once claimed that my evil grandmother PUSHED him in the receiving line....

Jan 2012

at my cousin's wedding.

Everyone thought he had exaggerated.

Months later, we were forced to watch slides of the wedding, and sure enough,
in SIX OR SEVEN pictures, taken one after another of people greeting the happy
couple, you can see, in stop motion, my AWFUL grandmother FULL-ON SHOVING
my brother out of the way to get to the groom.

Stop action of my brother's shocked face as he is almost pushed down the
church stairs, and of the adoring crazed fan-like expression on my grandmother's
face as she attempted to reach her other grandchild.

My OTHER brother had unwittingly captured the whole thing on film!

This is the SAME grandmother who lifted my husband's kilt with her cane
at MY wedding the year before.....
