Woman Has Accidentally Worn a Panama Flag Shirt Every July 4th For Decades – God, Grandmas Are the Best
As with many women of a certain age, old habits are hard to break. Such is the case for 88-year-old Shirley, who has worn the same festive shirt every Fourth of July for decades.
For the 25 years she's worn the "patriotic" shirt, no one questioned it – it was red, white, and blue, and it had stripes and a few stars – until Shirley's grandson Dale Cheesman watched a soccer game and noticed something very interesting.
"My grandma has worn the same shirt to celebrate the Fourth of July for more than 25 years . . . every year, she wears the exact same shirt," he wrote on Twitter. "Thanks to the World Cup, we finally noticed it's the Panama flag."
Seems like a classic grandma move, doesn't it? Still, Dale took the discovery seriously.
"Over 25 years of treason," he joked.
