If you are lucky enough to have one, you totally need to call your grandma. Actually, don’t call her, go get her, and bring her back to your house and spend the weekend with her. There is a chance you may not get along that well with your own mother, you may have your differences, she may drive you crazy, but I bet if you have a grandma she is pretty much amazing. I have no grandmothers alive, and it makes me sad almost everyday. I wish Â my own grandmother were around so she could spend time with my kids and get to know them and tell them all the stories she used to tell me when I was growing up. I think kids need grandmas, and they need to be around people who love them like only grandmothers can, totally unconditionally. Plus, the older I get the more I realize how much youth is totally overrated. Young people are boring. They are nowhere near as interesting or as cool as old people. Especially old ladies. So why do grandmothers rock so hard?
They Twerk. Even Better Than Miley.Â
They Make You Delicious Food.Â

Â They Can Totally Rock Your Clothes.Â
They Appreciate Your Stupid Obsessions.Â
Â They Are Way Funnier Than Anyone Else You Know.
Â They Give You All Sorts Of Things.Â
They Are Gracious When Your Kids Give Them Things.Â
Â They Are Pretty Much The Best Babysitters Ever.
A Lot Of The Time, They Are Your Best Friend.Â
And They Understand You Better Than Anyone Else.Â
I’m going to go cry now. Or stalk an old person and make them hang out with me.
