Grandma* is the queen bee of the neighborhood slide-n-gliders. But she's no happy drunken Buddha—she's just mean. She's almost always ornery, either because:
- She hasn't had enough to drink.
- She's had too much to drink.
In her more expansive moments, her voice echoes off houses and resonates through walls, interrupting conversations for a block around as she berates her perceived offender, perhaps telling them exactly what part of their anatomy stinks and urging them to wash it.**
It keeps things lively.
* We call her "Grandma" even though we don't know for a fact that she is one. But from her age and the large brood of kids around the house, it seems more than likely. If she is a grandma, she's a grandma from hell.
** She does seem to have a lot to say about other peoples odors. Maybe she just has a highly refined sense of smell, bless her heart.
