My Conversation with Grandpa

A:  Have you had a good day today?
G:  (Shakes head)  There won't be any more good days till I'm in the ground.  And that will be a problem, because then you just lay there forever.
A:  I'm pretty sure you're not going to be in the ground. I doubt you'll care much where your body is.
G:  Instead I'll be BELOW that, burning in hell.
A:  (Laughing)  Well, if you're there, that's where I want to be. Save me a place.  And on the chance that you go to another place, save me a place there, too, will ya?
G:  Shore! ("Sure") I'll have the roof on the second story by the time you get there.
A:  If I know you, there will be a couple of extra bathrooms, too.
G:  (chuckle)

I'm not sure he knew exactly who I was.  I think he knew I was family, but I doubt he could have said my name.  That's OK.  We still had a fun conversation.
