Yesterday I took my 87 year old grandmother for her first ever manicure.
Gramma Lois grew up in the thirties when money was scarce. She would never spend money on painting her fingernails.
While I understand this mentality a little bit, I do not think I can fully understand how she feels about dropping $10 on something so frivolous as a manicure.
Today at the wedding, though, she showed everyone her beautiful nails and told them all about how it was the first time she had ever had someone else do her nails.
I think she likes being spoiled. In fact, I know she does. She has a beautiful ring and watch set that my grandfather gave her years ago. She loves to tell everyone about this.
Spoling an 87 year old is easy…and fun.
