Visiting Grandmother

A Bar of Soap

by Terry Broxson

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.
In 1960, when I was fourteen, I spent a week with my Grandmother Minnie. We called her Granny. I wanted to know about Dad.

"Granny, what was my father like when he was fourteen?"

"We lived on a farm; he was a hard-working smart kid."

"Did he ever get into trouble?"

"All kids get into trouble."

"Not me, Granny!"

"I remember one time he let out the longest string of cuss words I ever heard!

"I grabbed his shirt collar, dragged him to the sink and washed out his mouth with soap!"

"Holy shit! Granny, you did that to Dad?"
