The use of endearing names such as gram & gramps adds a evoked a nice sense of intimacy im me - good one!

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

I'm not sure how to take this --- are they on exhibit at the museum? :)
(just kidding!)

Collin said...

I really like this one Vaughn.

j. andrew, interesting observation, perhaps this museum has a display of early mankind. In this case, gram & gramps are the exhibit!

Pat Paulk said...

Yes, it sounds like an early mankind exhibit. They are gram and gramps!!

floots said...

i read it as deliberately ambiguous
g/parents as exhibits is a nice thought
i still like ray bradbury's thoughts on how kids should see old people as time machines

good one

Tim Andrew, Collin, Pat, Floots: Thank you for your kind words and comments. The original concept was seeing in a museum display artifacts and scenes that bring back to life one's grand parents and how they lived many years ago (mine are, of course, now deceased).

I am pleased that you have uncovered various other levels, some of which I hadn't even thought of before. Well done!

My goodness, I'm starting to wonder if I was sober when I penned the above comment??!!

Tim: now that you point that out and I have re-read it...you have made me Laugh-Out-Loud.
