My kokum is amazing here are some highlights from dinner:
"-Of course they didnt take me seriously because Im a WOMAN" "oh I hate that" "RIGHT? Its terrible, dont they know who I am? DONT THEY KNOW I AM A MATRIARCH?"
"They are so happy they are engaged" "They’re engaged?" "Uhm, yeah, didn’t you see it on instagram?"
"My cousin just recently came out, I’m really happy for her, she’s had such a hard life but now she has a girlfriend she loves its so great."
"Oh it breaks my heart to see the betta fish in those little cups, its so cruel, I used to have those big tanks with bamboo and plants but I didnt know they needed a filter but my coworker has one in a two gallon tank with a filter now and its SO HAPPY."
"So I was looking into travel insurance for going to England, and get this, my friend Dave is 57 and he is pos and kind of sickly but hes going away for a few months and his insurance is $200. But because I’m 65 for me to go to England for a month would be $650! Can you believe that??? Its AGEISM they are NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT."
Me: “I need my hair done, I kinda want to go to this cool barber shop but Im a bit anxious about it.” “Oh. You know what you should go to Cade. She- I’m sorry- HE, Im sorry Im old Im bad at that, but he works at a salon around here I’ll get the name of where he works you should go to him.” Cue me being like ‘oh my god shes getting the thing’
Buying my cage and accessories for it I RUSH the register so she can’t get a chance to try and pay and she goes “Here Danae have some money to help with it” “NO KOKUM I GOT IT” She puts a $50 bill next to my wallet and walks away “KOKUM NO ITS OK” “oh arent these dog toys cute? I took Travis’ dog here to pick out her own toy it was so cute” “FINE IF YOU INSIST.”
