Nonna:  I don get it.  One is fat. The other is hagly. And everyone fights like they is stupid. Then they makin me pay.  Today I go to the h-eye doctor. They telling me I gonna pay $35 for test.  Why they give me test. They don ask. They give me test. Now, I seein on the television all these shitty people.  They don have to pay $35 for doctor.  They havin doctors in their house.  I gonna see em and kick them in the (points to her butt).

Me: Tell me how you really feel.

Nonna: No, you don have no idea. You comin here and you get food and laundry and everything.  You no worry about these doctors.

Me: True.So are you gonna vote?

Nonna: (crazy laughter) You thinkin I am gonna vote for fat or hagly?  No its not. They gonna vote on me. Maria for president number one.  I am better than Obama.

Me: You can’t be president, you weren’t born in this country.

Nonna: I am better than you.  I took my citizen esame.

Me: I know you did.
