The family wheeled Granny out on the lawn in her wheelchair, where the activities for her 100th birthday were taking place.
Granny couldn’t speak very well, but she could write notes when she needed to communicate.
After a short time out on the lawn, Granny started leaning off to the right, so some family members grabbed her, straightened her up, and stuffed pillows on her right.
A short time later, she started leaning off to her left, so again the family grabbed her and stuffed pillows on her left.
Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed her, then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up.
A grandson who arrived late came running up to Granny and said, “Hi Granny, you’re looking good! How are they treating you?”
Granny took out her little note pad and slowly wrote a note to the nephew, “They won’t let me fart.”
