That’s Just Not Right!

That’s Just Not Right!

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I was talking to you on the phone

When I noticed something… just not right

I kept on talking with you

As I talked, I walked by the mirror once again

Engrossed in what you had to say

When… again, I noticed something

Something’s just not …. right

Not right at all… you got my attention again

With what you had to say

In the back of my mind I knew

I could walk at anytime by the mirror

To check out what I felt … just wasn’t right

We talked, we laughed

All the while my mind stayed on something

I thought I saw when walking by the mirror

All of a sudden I said to you

That I’ve got to go!

It dawned on me what was… just not right!

I ran to the mirror, looked into my face

Oh my God, I had a mustache, thick and full

I’m a girl… I just knew… that wasn’t right!



Last night I had a dream … I was talking on the phone when

I looked into the mirror… I saw a beautiful mustache on my mouth.

I admired it until…. I remembered ‘I’m a girl… something’s just not

right!’ Then… I became upset, woke up……………………………………

I had to write about it.

When Tommy was living, he would make me laugh so much, when

we were talking and something was amiss… he’d say ‘That’s just not

right!’ The way he would say it would make me laugh non-stop! I

miss your fun ways, Son. I love and miss you with my heart……………
