So this happened

My grandma is quite the character.

She's an 80-year-old Long Island Jew with a penchant for Crown Royal and a love of art. She says words like "exquisite" on a regular basis and calls everyone "darling," though it sounds more like "daw-ling" with her thick New York accent. She has a boyfriend who lives in California, recently went white-water rafting, adores traveling around the world and doesn't go a day without wearing mascara. Oh, and she looks like she's 65.


Yep, that's my grandma.

Just yesterday, she was returning to her home in Memphis from a visit to her bf in California. In keeping with her unique personality, Grandma also like to chat with anyone and everyone. And I guess this includes heavy metal icons from the 80s, as evidenced by my mom's tweets...





Wait, what?

Grandma just made friends with a guy from Whitesnake?


Of course she did. Because it's Grandma.

Her life never ceases to amaze me.

Hilarious! Hope I'm as cool as your grandma when I hit the ripe old age of looking 65.

I totally own a Whitesnake t-shirt, so I am so very, very jealous of Grandma!
