How I “did” my Grandma

September 30th, 2008 · 88 comments

“My dear, sweet grandmother lived a long, full life and passed away recently at the age of 88,” writes Mark in Denton, Texas, but he still has the valentine his “Memaw” sent him back in 2005, during his freshman year of college.

Before the cockles of your heart get too warmed, however, take note: says Mark, “What appears at first glance to be an innocent, heartfelt valentine turned out to contain a message that pretty much sums up how she felt about me going to college a whole hour-and-a-half away, rather than the crappy local college…because apparently, that was my way of saying that my home and family just weren’t important to me.”

You will remember how you are doing me when I am gone.

On behalf of Jewish grandmas everywhere…Happy Rosh Hashanah, everyone!

      Memaw seems to be a southern thing. It was a shock the first time I heard a 30 year-old down-south man go all sweet when mentioning Memaw, followed by Mamma.

      Hope he didn’t do Memaw
      Like a seesaw.

      No, really, my best friend has a Memaw, and her grandfather was Poppa. Not to be confused with her Mama and Daddy. :)

      My mom is called Meemaw by her grandkids. I think it is a mostly Southern thing. My dad drew the line at Peepaw, though.

      Memaw is indeed a southern thing. A lot of southern folks have odd names for their grandparents, and they usually come in pairs.

      Often, when a person has surviving maternal and paternal grandparents, one set is “Memaw and Pepaw” and the other is “Mawmaw and Pawpaw.”

      If you want more than that, I can’t really help ya. It’s a pretty silly system.

      Actually, I just remembered that I do have more on this. Because not only am I from the south, I’m from Louisiana, where everything is a little bit stranger.

      There are weird names for all sorts of family members here because a lot of people here are Catholic and of French descent. A godfather is a “parrain.” A godmother, in French, should be a “marrain” but is often called a “nenaine” here, which of late has been Anglicized to “nanny.”

      Suddenly “memaw” doesn’t seem so weird.

      Don’t forget, sometimes, it’s not “pawpaw”; it’s pronounced ” pap-aw” and “mam-aw”. I live in the South, and my son calls my Mom “Nanna” and he called my Dad “pap-aw”. I drew the line at Pee-paw, too. I always envision a dog with pee on his paw when someone says that.

      My grandfather is a “grandpa.” He flatly refused to ever be called “paw-paw”… and then my young cousin decided, out of the blue, to call him that. Thankfully he has stopped.

      And secondsout, I’m glad you can still type with your father’s cock in your mouth.

      My dad is from SC. His grandparents were Meemaw and PopPop. His parents, to me, were Granny and Pop, Mama and Daddy to him (yes, my dad called his parents Mama and Daddy until their deaths when he was 45 and 52 respectively) so I’m pretty sure that it’s a southern thing as my cousins each have a Meemaw and PeePaw or Pops from the other side.

      We’re telling our kids that the proper thing to call their grandparents is “moomoo” and “poopoo”. Oh, yes, sweet revenge!

      Expanding on the multiple grandparents theory… I am lucky enough to have had both maternal and paternal grandparents as well as both of my parents mother’s mother (and one’s father) alive in my lifetime.

      We had to get creative with names… I have a Granny, Grandma, Nanny & Mamaw. As for grandfathers… much less creative… All three were called Papaw…

      I’m from California… The one consistent thing around here is that kids all switch to “Dad” and “Mom” around the fourth grade, as daddy/mommy are seen as infantile. (I was shocked the first time an online friend called her mother “mommy” and assumed it was from an unpleasant maturity disorder!)

      I called my great&grand-fathers Papa [firstname]. I knew my paternal grandmother as “Bum-bum” for the sound she made while bouncing me on her kne :) My maternal great-grandmother was Nonna (“naw-nuh”) as she was first generation Italian-American & spoke English as a second language.

      I don’t think what I used was representative of my region at all, though, as my cousins went with grandpa/grandma and I was a fairly classic autistic kid. :o)

    This note reminds me of my grandmother. In fact the last words I heard her say were “How could you do this to me?”

    I wanted to answer her, but the officers whisked her away shortly after the jury found her guilty. The court order prevented her from sending or receiving any correspondence from me. She was only sentenced to six years for sexually assaulting me but six years is hard on an old lady and she didn’t make it. She died before I could ever answer that question.

    The old bitch had it coming. All I wanted was a bowl of Frosted fucking Flakes, but she said I’d be all “hopped up” on sugar. So she fixed me a batch of Maypo instead. I hated Maypo. I hated her.

    So I waited. Everyday she watched The Price is Right before settling in for her midday nap. Just like clockwork, right after Bob Barker implored everybody to spay and neuter their pets, she put on her night gown, dropped her teeth in a glass and went to bed. “You behave and let Gramamaw get her beauty sleep,” she said as she closed the door to her room.

    After a few minutes I could hear her snoring away. That’s when I crept into her bathroom and grabbed her teeth, I pulled down my pants and pinched the tender white flesh of my inner thighs between the uppers and the lowers. It hurt but I pressed until I drew blood. Then I did the same thing on my buttocks, belly and eventually my scrotum and penis. Within 20 minutes I looked as if I had been ravaged by a pack of septuagenarian cannibals. That’s when I turned on the waterworks and wandered outside, naked.

    I staggered up her street crying and blubbering “Gramamaw ate my pee pee” all the while. Eventually a neighbor rushed to my aid and covered me with an afghan.

    The police were called and my grandmother was yanked from her midday slumber and hauled downtown. She spent the night in a holding cell wearing a dirty purple mumu and no teeth as her dentures were being compared to the bite marks all over my body. The police were hard on her and eventually she made confusing statements that the prosecution was able to damn her with. My parents were livid, my grandfather was despondent, my brothers and sisters made fun of me but that bitch got what was coming to her.

    When I want Frosted Flakes I get Frosted Flakes. You can bet my other grandparents received that message loud and clear. I never saw another sweater for Christmas and every birthday was like a bah mitzvah.

    I’m going to have to give my nephews a heads up. I am sure my mother will soon start sending them notes like this.

    Since when is UNT a crappy college, WTF?

      Well, Kelly, I think the confusion came when Mark was identified as being in Denton. We all assumed that was where he lived with his beloved Memaw, rather than where he fled to, escaping the horror that is Commerce, Texas.

      And I’ll stay here in Arlington, TX. Our local college isn’t that crappy (just a little bit).

    This is AWESOME. My grandmother was EXACTLY the same way. Thank you for sharing this site. I love it and can so relate. My grandmother nicknamed me Piss Ant; yet another saying from the past.

    We called my Grandmother GMah or Matriarch Myrtle….

    Oh, and my husband (a UNT alumnus) called his grandparents Mamaw and Papaw, which is so so so endearingly Southern to me. That seems to be the favored term for grandies in his place of origin – way east rural Texas, where you can spit on Arkansas if you’d like (and really, who wouldn’t?).

    *laughs* Jeez, looks like my Grannie’s handwriting. I am starting to think that maybe all great-grandma’s just have the same writing.

    P.S. I have a Mammaw, a Pappaw, a Poppa, and a Dangie. Yes. You heard the last one right. Dangie.

    If the card didn’t say grandson, I’d KNOW it was from my grandmother.

    Props to Mark for being man enough to get a real education instead of bending to a selfish jerk. Now he will be gainfully employed long after she’s gone!

    Another Louisianian here…
    I had a Memaw but I don’t know what her husband was called because he died when I was very young. Also Mimi & Pawpaw, Grandma & Grandpa, Ma & Papa, and Nanna.
