They Twerk And 9 Other Reasons Why I Love Grandmas More Than Anyone

BIaHqRZCYAAWvx___1373632791_74.134.205.46If 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  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. 

They Make You Delicious Food.

I’m going to go cry now. Or stalk an old person and make them hang out with me.

Grandmas rule!

      My grandmother once told me that men were like stray cats, if you feed them once you’ll never be able to get rid of them.

      My grandma is crazy, but a few years ago there was a ballot measure to add marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman to our state’s constitution. She was in town visiting, saw the billboard and asked me what it meant. I told her and her response has lived in my mind forever since. She said, “Why the hell don’t people just mind their own goddamn business and worry about themselves? I don’t give a shit who people want to sleep with, those people are just jealous.” Best Grandma Quote ever. But she is still crazy.
