I just hung out with my grandmafor a week,

a week with an 88-year-old lady.

Whew, you run out of topics

to talk about quickly.

Just sitting therestaring at her like,

"Well, uh..."

[sputters]

Dude, 88.

Crossword puzzles every day.

She drives.That's super dangerous.

[laughter]

We play gin rummy all the time.

Oh, she talks about death

with an easethat rattles my bones.

Holy [bleep], it's creepy.

It's like gang membersand my nana

talk about death the same way.

Like, "These streetsgonna take me out?

I ain't a littlemark-ass bitch."

And you're like,"All right, Nana, stop it.

Stop it, Nana."

You ever talk to anyoneover 80 about death?

It's just facts,

no emotions.

Closest I've ever cameto interviewing a serial killer.

Just sitting there like,

"Nana, what happenedto Rose next door?"

"She's gone."

[laughter]

"Did she move?"

"You're never gonna find her."

"D-d-did you kill Rose?"

She's like...[chuckling]

"Gin.""Oh, you sneaky bitch.

You're so goodat this game, Nana."

[laughter]

She does just kick the shitout of me in gin rummy

all the time.

It's pretty[bleep] embarrassing.
