A Grandmother’s Advice #1LinerWeds

Fasten your seatbelts because, yes, this is from MY grandmother.

Sometimes, when someone would say goodbye to her, my dear old gray-headed granny’s parting words were,

Be good; if you can’t be good, be careful; if you can’t be careful, name it after me.

My dear old gray-headed granny was a red-hot chili pepper.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about your dear old gray-headed granny. Or whatever kind you have or had or imagine.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Sounds like something Grandma Holton would say. She was another one with sass.

    LOL! I’m going to remember that one!

    I use to tell my children if they couldn’t be a good example then at least they’d be a horrible warning. I don’t know who first said it to give credit where credit is due, but I loved it and there were times they were warnings! ?

    Our family version ends, “…If you can’t be good, invite me along.” No, not from my forebears. Just from life.
