My Grandmother On My Move to LA

Posted on Mar 24 2010 - 6:16am by Mike Lieberman

I asked my Grandmother what her thoughts on me moving out to LA were. She is not one to hold back what’s on her mind.

Before answering the question, she wanted to make sure that she was camera ready and asked if her hair was combed and looked decent.

Then she chimed in with, “I don’t like to see you go, but if you think you are going to be happy there, I will be glad for that.”

She then got distracted by some “shmutz” that was on the floor that had to be picked up at that exact moment. After she remembered what she was saying, Gram continued, “I hope you find what you are looking for. What it is, I don’t know, but time will tell.”

I’ve attempted to explain blogging, SEO and social media to her before, but it’s not so easy to explain to a 91-year old who can barely understand a cordless phone.

A request was put in for her to address some of her “fans” on the internet, but she couldn’t grasp the concept of what I was talking about. She thought I was going to bring the internet into her house. Some attempts were made to explain who and what I was talking about, but that went round and round in circles.

When asked to say “goodbye” to everyone, she couldn’t get what I was talking about. So I told her to say goodbye to the garden. She said that she’ll still have hers, but we all know that my backyard vegetable garden is way superior.

That’s it from my Grandmother’s and her house. Closing out another chapter.
