“Hey you guys, come in here it’s going to be on again!” yelled my amused grandma, “you guys have to see this show!”
 “we’re coming” I said annoyed that she interrupted me and my sisters conversation. We trudge into the living room and flopped onto the couch.
 “Ha ha ha ha you will LOVE this; everyone’s not here yet and its going to start soon”, she yelled as she raced out the door to get everyone in the yard. Oh gosh, she’s finally gone crazy, I thought as she sped back into the room and stood in the middle of the room blocking everyone’s view.
 “Hurry, hurry its going to be on after this commercial” my grandma said exasperated at us for not being as exuberant. Finally the show came on and it was a horse race; the announcer was rapidly shouting the horses names. Then it happened…
 “There’s hoof hearted, hoof hearted is in the lead, hoof hearted, hoof hearted.” exclaimed the announcer. By this time, my grandma was rolling on the floor laughing hysterically. The announcer was saying hoof hearted so fast that it sounded like “who farted”. Everyone was so surprised that we just looked at my grandma and laughed.
 “I told you it was funny!” cried my grandma, “it’s the funniest thing of my life, hoof hearted, hoof hearted!” she said euphorically. My grandma is so optimistic and she cares about people, fun loving, but serious.
 She has been a bus driver for over thirty years and has gotten to know a lot of people during that time. She drives the elementary to the high school ages. When they are on the bus together she sings songs with them and teaches them how to be honest in their dealings with other people. She will listen to their problems and try to help them
understand why, they tell stories ,and joke with them. One time she was driving her bus to pick up some chipper elementary kids, they love to talk and trade things around for something cooler. One of the light-hearted kids had a Nintendo DS and Tommy wanted to borrow it from him. So he let Tommy borrow it. Tommy was so amused with it that he never returned it and brought it home with him. The confused and distressed  kid started crying the next day and told my grandma about it and so she talked to Tommy who said the one kid said that he could have it. She contemplated on what to do and eventually she got the anxious  parents involved and Tommy got in a lot of trouble, found the Nintendo at his house and gave it back. She is really good at making the kids be honest with each other and not stealing what they know is not theirs.
 My grandma is so significant to me because she has taught me how I should act, she has shaped my entire self being. I love her so much for that, she has taught me how to laugh, even when it seems that the world will just crumble to pieces. How to love unconditionally, how to always look on the bright side of things, how to care about someone in need of caring. Even though she is a busy-body at some times, she knows what is best from an outsiders objective.
