The Scarf

A few weeks ago when we went to New Hampshire for the weekend my aunt was kind enought to stay with my spoiled rotten dog Reilly. What can I tell you about my aunt? She's 83 years old and has more energy than anyone half my age I know. She walks miles everyday because she never learned how to drive (thank God) and she refuses to take the FREE senior citizen bus the town offers cuz that's for "OLD" people. She will argue with the cashiers in the supermarket for not taking her expired coupons and everyone is always out to "get" her. Did I mention she is "right off the boat" italian?

OK so...we get home from our weekend and I'm in my room putting away all of the clothes she had washed for me, when she says "AY! I gotta aska you soma ting" Before I knew what was happening she walk over to my....ummmmm...."DRAWER". You know the one with my private things in it and opened it up and pulled out the scarf.


WTF just happened here?! I stood there as she asked me something I have NO clue what because my eyes were glued to the open drawer with all the "stuff" exposed!! There was a very loud hum in my ears as I stood frozen watching her mouth move and then she looked at me for an answer. At that moment I wanted the earth to open up and swallow me whole. I kinda waived my hand at her and nodded my head as I walked ALL the way around to the other side of the bed and casually closed the drawer. She seemed very happy with my answer and took the scarf and left the room!

Still unable to breathe I tried to convince myself that was no big deal because she's 83 for godsakes she wouldn't know what any of that stuff was anyway...but OMG there was no denying the the full color pictures on the videos!!!! Then another thought hit me...WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE DOING GOING THROUGH MY DRAWERS ANYWAY??? I was mortified to say the least, just wait til all the relatives in Italy hear about THIS one!

Well nothing was ever mentioned again, she got my scarf so she was happy and the next day I went out and bought a lovely box with a LOCK on it....and a new scarf!


  1. OMG....I cant face her.

    Im never coming over again...

  2. Don't be silly! She thinks you're a "nice-a girla" and if she had another son she would GIVE you to

  3. They know, they really do know what we're doing! They are old but they are not ignorant. Ha Ha, they did it too the best they could at the time-all the things we like. Thanks for visiting Secret Story Time!


  4. Thanks for the birthday wishes - hope you had a wonderful day!

  5. LOL, how mortifying! Old people are really ballsy, I've noticed. At least she didn't mention anything else... so you can pretend it never happened ;-)

  6. ummm that's amazing! horrifying - but amazing.
