  •     We all have that one senior citizen that means so much. That person spends time with you even when you’re a brat; they stand behind you no matter what. My favorite person in the entire world is my grandma Dianna Erickson. I could be the biggest brat in the world, and she would still love me like grandmas are supposed to do. I’m not a morning person, and so I’ll always try not to wake up in the morning or say I’m not feeling well. This doesn’t slide past Grandma Dianna. She will keep calling my house phone or even come to my house to wake me up! She will not let me sleep in, and she refuses to write me passes so I can get back into school.   
        I like to think my grandma is probably the best grandma in the world. She does whatever I ask her to do. She helps me with everything from doing homework to learning how to do my own makeup, so I don’t look like I have raccoon eyes! When I first started putting makeup on in seventh grade I looked like someone punched me square in between the eyes and I had no idea what I was doing.  Grandma taught me the right way to wear makeup.   
        When I was little I don’t think I had anyone who was my best friend besides my grandma and I still love to hangout with her.  She will always be the one person I can count on to go to a G-rated movie with me even if it’s for five year olds.  I know for a fact there’s no way a guy my age or even my boyfriend would go to a movie that’s rated G and is animated!    
        My favorite part about my grandma is how caring and nice she is and also how she puts up with my bad moods.  Every two months we go to get our hair done together at Oliveri’s hair salon in Grand Forks.  She doesn’t even make me pay for it! When we go shopping she buys me a lot of things. Sometimes I forget to wear my new cloths until I find it in my closet with tags on.  She often asks me, “What happened to that shirt I got you?”  I’ll say. “Oh, I think it’s in my closet or it’s getting washed.” Since I’m older now it doesn’t happen that much. I wear a lot of the clothes she gets me.   
    Page 2 of 2 -     When I was younger I would try to manipulate the adults into getting me triple Barbies. I would ask my dad for a Barbie for my birthday. Then I asked my mom for the same one.  Then I would ask my grandma for the same Barbie. That way I could have triplet Barbies. When I got too old to keep asking for three of everything, I gave up on that idea.    
        Even though I’ll be going off to college next fall I’ll still be planning on coming home to see my Grandma.
