100 words for June


My Grandpa
joined da military
afta Japan bombed
Pearl Harbor.

His buddies used
to ragom everyday
about his name,
Adolph.

One night, dey drew
one small mustache
unda his nose while
he stay sleeping.

Dey woke him up
laughing, "Heil Hitler!"

He still loved da military.
He hated coming home
to his wife and kids.

He bought one yellow
bug an piled five
in da back.

My mom was always
embarrassed when he
dropped or picked her up.

His nickname for her
was stupid-head.

"Why you always late
you stupid-head,
you tink I got all
day fo wait?"
