You will never be as cool as your grandmother

tcXzl.jpeg


Maybe you never thought about it, but those who are now grandmothers, wore super short miniskirts, tight pants, high boots, and many didn't even wear bras.


They listened to Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin.


They drove Mini Coopers and powerful motorcycles.


They smoked, drank gin and tonic, whiskey, and who knows what else.


They went to music festivals, in the mud, that lasted 3 days, and maybe they even danced naked in the crowd.


They lived very long days, because they had no internet, no smartphones, no social networks, and they didn't care much for television.


They would get home at four in the morning and go to work that same morning.


Learn this:  
You will never be as cool, as your grandmothers were.
Someone had to say this.

Guilty on all counts, Javier, except the super short mini skirts … and, yeah, I still don’t wear a bra. 😂🤣😂

I wish I had a grandmother like that. Still, there is lots to admire in that generation even if they weren't all “rebels without a cause” in their youth…

I'm almost grandmother age and yes, I do recall doing some of those things when I was young. I never thought of myself as cool. I think the older Baby Boomers certainly blazed a few trails.  My grandmother, on the other hand, was as cool as should could be for her era. This is her with my grandfather in his WWI army uniform. I think my grandfather was unusually handsome for the time. He was 25 years older than my grandmother. He looked like a movie star.
