Writing about my grandfather

I am currently working on a piece about my grandfather, grandfathers in general, and I need to finish it soon, as I intend to read it on my good bye lecture next Sunday. It’s going to be tough, though, I weep easily, and it’s a cruel, sentimental piece and I start to weep while writing it, how am I supposed to read it then? Might need the help of Greg. It’s not even about things that I have witnessed myself, it’s about how I imagine that things might have happened at a time when I wasn’t even born (and at one point I’ll have to write about WW2, that’s going to be tough) and about things that happened while I was away. Of course I’m dramatizing things, that’s what I’m good at:-) But need to learn to read this without crying.

And the answer is:

six! not three – you ignored the ‘of’ (just like Google does when you search for the rose of Spanish Harlem).
