This is real. The conversation is made up because it was by text, but this actually happened.
Not kidding. A World War II grenade. It was with things belonging to my uncle who died in December, but he may have gotten it from another uncle who died twenty five years ago and just shoved it in the attic without telling anyone. If my grandparents knew about it, they didn’t tell my aunt when she and her husband bought the house from them, which seems really unlikely.
Oh, and the answer to the above question is that you call the police and they call in the bomb squad to get rid of it.
Quite a Wednesday.
