My Grandfather Wants Me Married (And Other Things That Won't Happen Anytime Soon)

Talked to my Nonno today—he’s a 92-year-old sexist, racist, homophobic, Roman Catholic, republican, Italian man. And I love him. However… In regards to my being single: “You better get looking, Chrissa—you’re 25; it’s getting time for you to settle down.” “Well, Nonno, there aren’t many nice boys in Chicago.” “Oh, yeah, no, not in Chicago. Don’t look there.” (never is there mention that my 29-year-old brother should “settle down”).
