Grammy and Poppa

Helen and Jack Mandiberg
 
You call your grandparents "Grammy" and "Poppa." They live in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan and are roughly 90 years old. These days you usually only speak to them in situations of medical emergency. Mom will call with a hospital room phone number when one of them has hurt themselves, or when one of their conditions acts up, and they need their grandchild to cheer them up. They greatly enjoy speaking to you, though you tell them little about the details of your life. They used to be very open thinkers, but as with many old age has narrowed their worldviews. Mom has told them about your work, but they don't really understand. Though they have stopped asking you if you are going to go into Medicine, they don't usually ask you about your art when you talk with them.
