Seriously, Gaba

“Seriously, Gaba,” my granddaughter said,

“you might need some help.

First it was paying attention

to your right big toe

and now you’re raving about

toenail clippers. I understand

your appreciation for ingenuity

and good design, but really…

clippers with magnifying glasses

and Einstein quotes? Clippers with grippers

for aging folks?

Other grandmothers take note of

birds and flowers, clouds, and trees.

Gaba, get help. I beg you. Please.”

  1. I think clippers with a magnifying glass is a great idea! Not sure about the Einstein quote (although why not?) but personally I would need the magnifying glass to read the quote!
