Never Share a Room with Grandma

I love my grandmother and though she is an elder, she has a very young spirit, but sometimes my grandmother can be quite wonky.

The time difference between Florida and England is about 5 hours. After going to a pub, my family and friends decided it was time to go home to get some shut eye, but that didn't seem to be the case.

"Hanny wake up! It's 12pm, everyone's awake and probably having breakfast. I already took a shower."

My grandmother had turned the light on and frantically moved around the room. I yawned and still felt very tired, but I sat up. I took a look outside the window still in zombie mode and noticed it was still dark out.

"Grandma...It's dark out"

"Yeah, but I heard that sometimes at noon its dark like that..."

I went towards my purse to get my phone. As I turned on my phone, it read 7:05pm.

"Grandma, it's only about 12 am since its about a 5 hour difference and it's only 7:05pm in Florida."

"How can it be, I heard people walking around."

"Go see if mom is awake."

My grandmother left the room only for her to come back two minutes later.

"She asked why I just woke her up."

"So everyone seems to be sleeping then...So basically you woke up an hour later after you had fallen asleep only to take a shower and wake half of everyone up at midnight?"

"I guess so..."

My grandma and I had a good laugh...

You gotta love time differences.

  2. Haha! I've just randomly come across your blog and I have to say, this story is comedic gold! Your grandmother sounds like such a joker. Really great blog btw.

  4. Haha. Gotta love grandmothers. Glad you had a good laugh together.

  5. Funny story! Got to love our grandparents though. Nothing’s more fun than our grandparents taking a scene from a sitcom. :D
