Retarded Grandparents

Tuesday, January 25, 2011


Written by a third grader, on what his grandparents do.

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they
spent their holiday away from school. One child wrote the following:

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and
Grandpa. They used to live in a big brick house, but
Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Arizona . Now they
live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like
grass. They ride around on their bicycles, and wear name
tags, because they don't know who they are anymore. They
go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have
got it fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises
there, but they don't do them very well. There is a
swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with
hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a
little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody
can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in
their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.

And, they eat the same thing every night - early birds. Some of the
people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out,
bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and,
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too.

When I earn my retardment , I want to be the man in the doll house.
Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.
