This is not a chat-up line

100 words about meeting your grandfather unexpectedly

‘Hello sweetheart.’

‘Yikes, grandpa. Chat up someone closer to your age.’

‘I’m not chatting you up. That would be illegal.’

‘Yeah? I might be eighteen.’

‘I’ve been watching you for a couple of days.’

‘Watching me? It’s getting worse by the sentence.’

‘I am your grandfather. Paternal grandfather.’

‘No, you’re not. I mean, you look old enough, but you hardly give off the responsible adult vibe. Also, my father’s father is dead.’

‘Is that what Jamie told you? How did I die?’

‘Dunno… Crap, you look just like him, though. If Dad were old and a hippie, I mean.’

‘See.’
