What's Your Name?

Dear Tatum,

This morning Grandma got up from bed and sat in her chair as she does every morning. She put her ears (hearing aids) in as she does every morning. Then she looked at me and asked, "What's your name?" I said, "Grandma!" And she said, "It's not 'Grandma.'" I looked at her in quiet disbelief and told her my name. "Jenny," I said. "Oh!" she said, "Jenny. Just like this here." She pointed to the slip of paper near the phone with my name and number on it. "Yes, Grandma, just like that."
