Two grandmothers

Two grandmothers met to chat together. One of them said, “Please, please, I have to tell you something very significant about my granddaughter. It is so cute, so cute.”

The other grandmother said, “All right, what is it? If you want to tell me about your granddaughter — how beautiful and how good she is, and how she has done something very great and significant — I shall listen to you without fail. But there is one condition: you have to listen to all my stories about my twenty grandchildren.”

The first grandmother immediately said, “In that case, I have changed my mind. I do not want to tell you about my granddaughter. Let us change the topic!”
