We spoke with Boyfriend's 95-year-old Grandma in Chicago the other day. She came over to the U.S. from Poland when she was just sixteen. By herself. She didn't know a word of English when she got off the boat in America. So, she taught herself English by reading the dictionary.
Boyfriend: "Do you still read the dictionary, Grandma?"
Grandma: "You bet! It's my bible!"
You go, Grandma.
