The nun mie

Hey, this post is vintage content. It dates back more than 16 years ago: it may contain outdated and inaccurate information.

My grandmother - Angela - used to spend a lot of time alone. She would make me pancakes with potatoes. And with leftover rice from the restaurant. My grandmother - Ginetta - now spends a lot of time alone. And she doesn't like it. She taught me the instinct for apple pie.

My grandmothers, if I didn't have them, I wouldn't be the same.

Angela had curls. Ginetta, every now and then, the hairstyle that looks like it's been set in motion.

One said she didn't have curls

One said she no longer remembered things, the other said. But they always remember me.

They always remember me

Angela had few doubts.

Ginetta - short for Regina Albertina Michelina - occasionally wants to know if I am in love.

(I couldn't resist the inspiration of the tumblr of grandmothers)
