Seven things I know about my paternal grandmother:
- She was quiet.
- She kept the books for the family record store.
- Depending on who you ask, she suffered either from bipolar disorder, or postpartum depression.
- She kept excellent cookies in her cupboard (to my 4-year old tastes).
- As a kid, it was Yiddish at home, English at school.
- The first time she gave birth, she found out she was having twins between the first baby and the very-soon-to-follow second one.
- She was prone to fungus.
