Pork Chops and Gravy

Repost from June 2008


Hey blogworld! What it be like folks? All is well here and I hope the same is true for all of you. I’ll be in the house all weekend this weekend, so I’m hoping to catch up on all of your blogs. Let me share a brief conversation that my husband and I had with my grandmother this past weekend.

Hubby: Hey Grandma! How are you?
LuLu: Hey baby. I’m just fine. How ya feeling?
Hubby: I’m good. Guess what? We’ve got some news.
LuLu: Something new? What?
Hubby: We’re having a baby!
LuLu: Ya’ll are making gravy?
Hubby: No, Grandma, we’re having a baby.
LuLu: What kind of gravy?
Hubby: No, Grandma, listen. MrsTDJ is pregnant and we’re having a baby.
LuLu: Pork chops and gravy? I don’t make ’em so much no more.

A frustrated MrsTDJ grabs the phone from hubby.

MrsTDJ: LuLu, listen.
LuLu: I’m listening to MrTDJ talk about ya’lls dinner.
MrsTDJ: LuLu, no really, really listen and pay attention.
LuLu: **sighing** Ok, go ‘head.
TDJ: I’m pregnant and we are having a baby.
LuLu: A baby? Oh my word. So why is Mr. TDJ wasting time talking about gravy?

That woman keeps me laughing. She’s never trying to be funny, but I think that’s why I get such a kick out of her comedy. And of course, my husband’s new nickname for our little blessing is “Pork Chop”.

Today, March 14 is her birthday and thinking of her always brings a smile to my face.  Happy birthday Grandma!!   Reach out and call a loved one today blog family!


NOTE: THIS IS A REPOST FROM JUNE 2008. I am NOT having another child.   LittleTDJ is a happy, wonderful only child, just like his mama!
