Family History

Genny and Kathy were walking around an outdoors man store and checking out camping equiptment.

Genny drew Kathy's attention to a collapsible drip coffee maker.

Genny: Hey, mom, look at this. That's useful.
Kathy: Yeah it is. (Pause.) Or you could just use your sock. (Pause.) That's what my grandmother did.
(Big pause.)
Genny: Wasn't your grandmother a four foot eight Puerto Rican woman?
Kathy: Yes.
Genny: She went camping?
Kathy: No. It was a clean sock... That's just the way it was around the house.
