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!
