The Goodbye Lie Diaries - Grandmother Peeper

August 1880s Amelia Island, Florida

Grandmother Peeper writes:  It's mighty hot these here last days.  I dun told nasty Aunt Noreena she kin be akeepin' herself cool at night ifn' she'll just take ta sleepin' under a wet sheet necked. She won't have none of it.  She says it ain't dignified.  She needs more sleep or she'll git even meaner than her usual ugly self and we'll have ta set a trap fer her. I always feel so sorry for Clabe. He ought ta be gettin' a medal fer livin' with that thing of a wife. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
