A couple weeks ago: My daughter (RT) had a conversation with granddaughter (Z).  They had the exchange {below}… Trying to explain to her that I was taking her to a Festival in Rockville, IN

First :

  • Z – “I want to go see Grandma.”
  • RT – “This weekend.”
  • Z – Where are we going?”
  • RT – “The Covered Bridge Festival.”
  • Z – “Where?”
  • RT – “Rockville, I think.”
  • Z – “Rockwell? I want to see Rockwell.”
  • RT – “Z. No. RockVILLE. RockWELL is where the Aliens are.”
  • Z – “I want to go see Aliens with Grandma!”
  • RT – “When you’re old enough.”
  • Z – “When will I be old enough?”
  • RT – “I don’t know, like 14.”
  • Z – “So when I’m 14 Grandma will take me to see the Aliens?”
  • RT – “Sure.”
  • Then RT – to me: “Guess you just got signed up to go to Rockwell in 10 years HAHAHA!

My REPLY:  [Laughing!  I have tears rolling down my face at this point] “IT’S ROSWELL!” [and I’ll be 60!]

Signed – Grandma Auburn- Wait… What? #howdthathappen    0.o
