You know those people who just can’t wait to talk about their kids?
Well, I’m one of them.
But instead of talking about kids, I talk about my nan.
Seriously, in any given conversation I’m going to be using at least 60% of my brain to think of ways I can change the conversation to her. Why? Because she’s the light of my life, and I tell her that all of the time.
Also because she’s cool.
Really, really cool.
In order to demonstrate just how cool, I’m going to do something I never do.
I’m going to tell you a story and employ the most modern of literary devices – if we can really call them that – hashtags.
I don’t particularly like using them (in honesty they make me cringe) but they’re at least supposed to be pretty cool. If by using them I can demonstrate just how cool my nan is, well, it’s worth a few cringes on my part.
So here goes…
My nan, at the age of 94, laughs loudly every single day. In fact, there’s barely a time when she’s not laughing. #LifeGoals.
She goes to the hairdressers every single week. #HairGoals.
She gets a manicure every two weeks. #BeautyGoals.
A man, who had been admiring her over a number of weeks, gave her a Valentine’s Day rose. #CrushGoals.
She graciously accepted, but she wasn’t flattered. #CoolGoals.
She’s been a widow for over 4 years now, but she explained that after being married to my grandad for 61 years nobody could even come close to her standards. #LoveGoals. #TrueLoveGoals. ❤️
