...does not diminish when we get older.
How is an old Grandma like me supposed to keep up with all the hand signals the 'cool' kids use?
Growing up we only knew one hand signal.
And it was the one that would get us grounded if we ever used it around our parents.
I'm certain you know the one to which I am referring.
This week I started school shopping with Grandlittles.
The middle girl got to go first this year.
We went to the mall.
After trying on 23 pairs of shorts that looked EXACTLY alike (Seriously. How can they even tell the difference?), we finally ended up at the $5 photo booth.
We took three silly pictures and on the fourth and final picture, my Grandlittle said, 'Grandma! Call me! Call me!" and held up her fingers in a 'call me' hand signal.
I thought I did pretty good.
Apparently, at least according to Riley...
I did not!
She and her sisters had an uproarious laugh over my botched 'call me' hand signal.
I was quick with an explanation, though. I told them my hand signal was the latest and coolest one and it meant 'call me OR text me OR IM me!' but they didn't buy it.
They didn't buy it in the slightest.
Trying to be a cool Grandma is so exhausting.
And hey, if you want to call me OR text me or IM me to discuss it...
...just use the new hand signal.
