Six Sentence Story- Grandpa Knows Better


“If you see two birds in the bush, shoot ’em.”

“That’s not the way the saying goes, Grandpa.”

“It’s always worked that way for me just right, Grandson, and I don’t care about your ‘proper’ educated words because dopes spring up eternally.”

“That’s “Hope springs eternal.”, Grandpa…You sound dumb.”

“Last I knew Mr. Dope, you’re the one $50,000.00 in debt for a college education that got you a job at a factory and you’re 24-years-old still living at home, so ‘actions speak louder than words’.”

“Even a broken clock is right twice a day, Grandpa…Touche’.”

  1. He said TouchΓ¨ for himself, so he has some learning to do.Especially from his grandpa…the devastating effects of breaking the social connection within families/society with older people (relatives or not) will be soon evident .
    Loved your Six, Susan.

    1. Thanks, Nick. I had a close educational relationship with my grandparents. Too many kids do not have that. It’s the ‘secret sauce’ in a cohesive society. All I can do is be large influence on my own granddaughters and hope for the best. ❀

  2. Good Six.
    I defer to M. Twain
    “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”–Mark Twain
