Know What I Heard?

Grampa do you know what Diane said?

 

No. And I don’t care.

 

Even if it’s about you?

 

Especially if it’s about me.

 

Why?

 

Because you’re a tattle-tale.

 

I am not.

 

Yes you are.

You glean every morsel of information available

And then dole it out to people who you hope will find it alarming.

 

I do not.

 

You’re a mischievous gossip.

 

I’m telling Mommy what you said,

And then you’ll be in trouble!

 

Grampa Grant is Richard Hille, a long time Laguna Beach resident with three Grandchildren.
