I think I learned about Tourette syndrome from the Maury Povich Show. The things you learn from random places...This has nothing to do with Karen's grandma. I bet they watched Maury in the nursing home though.

Haha maybe ;D. I actually had a hard time sympathizing with Nancy in this book, mostly because I couldn't understand where she was coming from on her fear of old people. When I was her age and even before that, I was always at my grandma's house. She was one of my closest family members next to my parents and my grandma would always bring her friends over and it never bothered me. I think it was because I had exposure to older people that made it easier for me to be around them. My aunt also works at a nursing home so I've been exposed to older people there as well. So when I was reading this book I was just like WTF at Nancy because really, how and why could you be afraid of old people?
