Your friend asks you to hang out and you’re totally down, but when the time comes your bed feels more comfortable than usual, so you wait as if staying in bed will exude a mystical power that will convince your friend not to want to go anywhere…and then the text comes in…
Friend: Girl, I am so tired
You: Me too, such a long day
Friend: You still want to go
You: It’s up to you…I’m down for whatever
Friend: Maybe we should stay home
You: kk **Jumps out of bed and does the happy dance**
If this exchange sounds familiar and you are only in your twenties then you are a GRANDMA! You might be wondering, what makes me such an expert and it’s because I’m a grandma. I know I am. I’ve always preferred staying home than being out on the streets until the wee hours of the morning. I hate coming in when the sun comes out, it just ruins my sleep patterns. As much as I love fun and social gatherings, being home is just as fun.
See below, some signs of grandma-hood approaching prematurely upon you:
1-Your friend call’s you at 11pm and you’re already sleeping…ON A FRIDAY NIGHT!
2-Your idea of an epic night is staying home and watching movies in bed…bring on the Love Jones!
3-You’re totally over the “club” scene..but remember back in the day when the club was like reaching nirvana? It was just the coolest thing ever.
4-You use words like “Back in the day” (see #3).
5-When you actually do go out, every song that the DJ play’s you have to turn to the friend that is least likely to judge you and ask “What song is this?”
