Yeah, and I'm Ruben's brother

I just had to share this. This sweet-sounding older lady called work today and I answered. She said, "Yes, my name is blah blah blah. I'm Bo Bice's grandmother." Well, I haven't watched American Idol any this year, but I've listened to radio and read the paper enough to know that Bo Bice is one of the finalists or whatever, and he is originally from Alabama. She went on to say he was gonna be appearing somewhere around here tonight. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting call, if not humorous. (And no, I'm not posting this just so I'll get some extra hits, although I probably will.)

"We took one more trip around the sun, but it was all make-believe in the end. No, I can't say where she is today. I can't remember who I was back then..."


  1. This is interesting, Bo's grandmother called you on 2-23-05 and said that she had not watched American Idol. I was with her on the 21st and watched the show with her. She also gave an interview along with Bo's mother before the show started. I know for a fact that she along with the rest of the family and friends have watched the show since day 1.I beleive that you might have talked to someone wishing that she was Bo's grandmother. You never know.

  2. Well, that could be, but I meant that I had not watched any AI. I should've been clearer, but I ended her quote right before saying that I haven't watched American Idol this year. She never said she hadn't watched it. I would imagine that she is watching every night :-)

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
