I get a call from my mother this afternoon. She says she got a call from my niece a couple of days ago. It seems she was offered an anchor position with the local TV station there and was immediately assigned to be a mentor for a student from UNLV who was majoring in Broadcast Journalism. The following conversation took place:
Mom: I’m so proud of you Jenn!
Niece: Thanks! Oh, I have to tell you something funny.
Niece: I was assigned to be a mentor for a girl from UNLV
Mom: My alma mater!
Niece: Yeah! So, when I found out she was from Vegas I told her that my grandmother was from Vegas.
Niece: I went on to brag about you and how you sing in Gladys Knight’s choir
Niece: The intern said to me, "Oh–My grandma is really busy with that choir". and I said OH–does your grandmother sing with Gladys too? and she said, "My grandma *IS* Gladys Knight".
Mom: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! That will teach you not to brag!
Niece: I got one-upped today!
