Too old

Ella was preparing to go to a dinner party a couple of nights ago and I heard her great-grandmother was going to be there.

Me - Do you know how old your great-grandmother is, Ella?
Ella - No?
Me - She's 93!
Ella - [Opening eyes and mouth wide in an expression of sheer astonishment] Wow! That's just too old! She should be died.

It was futile to try control my laughter. I did only just manage to say to her that she should never, ever tell her great-grandmother what she'd just told me.

I am definitely with Ella on this one - I want to be died before I get to 93!!

lol... When we visit Boo's great grandma who's much younger than Ella's (she's 87). Boo likes to wake up the man who's 105 to make sure he's not in heaven yet!
