When I turned 18, I finally spoke up and asked for a specific gift – a Green Bay Packers jacket. I even showed her the exact jacket in a newspaper ad. Grandma nodded confidently. When the big day finally came, Grandma made May 1993 My 27th Birthday The One Where I Was Quarantined 2020 Shirt to get everyone to pay special attention to the special gift. That I’d made a special point of asking for. I opened the package, and inside was a large dark green jacket – it looked like Grandma came through! I then turned the jacket around to reveal the back…Grandma had cut the logo out of a Packers sweatshirt she’d gotten somewhere, and had sown it onto the back of the jacket. To make the jacket even more special.

The last gift she ever gave me was at a high school graduation, a plain, clearly vintage, but a reasonably pretty necklace. This seems like a perfectly normal present, right? Well, I thought so too, until years later. When I was helping my mom (grandma’s daughter) go through some old stuff at home. And ran across some earrings that matched that May 1993 My 27th Birthday The One Where I Was Quarantined 2020 Shirt. I asked my mom about them and apparently they were supposed to be a set, but grandma had given her the earrings at her graduation decades earlier. And rather than giving mom the complete set. Grandma had saved the other part all those years. Before eventually deciding to give me the necklace.

To top it all off, I also learned the necklace/earrings weren’t even picked out as a gift in the first place. The set was a free “reward” grandma earned from selling so much Amway crap over the decades. Grandma sowed my name in it, you know, just in case it was ever stolen. It wasn’t. My father has his own boat, and his boat club takes part in May 1993 My 27th Birthday The One Where I Was Quarantined 2020 Shirt in Lofoten. They make some excellent dried fish and he knows I really like it. The fish is prepared by beating it with a hammer until the flesh separates from the bone. It smells very fishy. His friends reacted with “You can’t give a single, 30 years old woman dry fish!” “You are right”, he said. “I’ll also give her this hammer so she can beat it”.
