9 Signs You're The Grandpa Friend Of The Group

Move over, mom friend.

You've heard of the mom friend, the dad friend — even the older sister friend. But what about the grandpa friend? The friend that uncannily reminds you of your grandfather, even though they're one of your closest friends. If you don't identify with the mom friend or the dad friend, you're probably the grandpa friend.

1. They go to bed ridiculously early.

We're talking like 8 p.m. early.

2. They also eat dinner ridiculously early.

Dinner by 4 anyone?

3. They ask you to repeat what you're saying all the time.

Huh? What did you say? I can't hear you.

4. Their bones frequently creak and groan.

You sometimes wonder if they're going to fall apart.

5. They constantly complain about back pain.

"Ow, my back!"

6. They always have stories about "the old days."

But they never seem to go anywhere or do anything anymore.

7. They're good at card games.

Somehow, they always win at Hearts?

8. They walk really slow.

Excuse me, I have places to go.

9. But at the end of the day, they have some of the best dance moves.

You can't think of anyone better to kick it on the dance floor with.

A Poem: My Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, that was on the 12th, here is a poem dedicated to my mother.


To the only person who can be my mentor, friend, and leader at the same time

To someone who would make me read my own books before bedtime

And puts everything down to make sure there is a smile on my face

To the person that I find impossible to ever replace.

Somehow you are always right even when it seems wrong

And when the worst does happen, how do you still manage to stay so strong?

I'm not only impressed but inspired by you

Knowing that somehow you'll always know me better than I do.

When I'm frustrated and annoy you, you simply try to understand me

Because you have always told me that even when you can't understand, plain acceptance is the key

You have listened to all my laughs, heard me cry, and felt my emotions like they were your own

You are the only reason I am joyous and the security I need to know that I am never alone.

To the only person who has truly taught me how to live

And watched me grow and make mistakes yet still knows how to forgive

Because that's who she is, certainly not like any other

There are many women but none like my own mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
