My Grandfather’s Girlfriend

My grandfather’s got this girlfriend and I’m happy for him. Yeah, I’m happy for him…But, well, I just want to know – Did he get butterflies when he first saw her? Did he blush when she smiled back at him? Or is love different for them? Love. No that can’t be it. Lust. I meant to say lust. Lust? No, no, that can’t be it either. Why do they have to claim exclusivity at that age? Do they…have sex? No way. No. No way. Hmm…no, gross. But well, I just don’t understand why they can’t just be friends. What’s with the label, Grandpa? I mean, don’t get me wrong, she’s great! She’s okay. She’s fine. She makes good hot chocolate. You know, not everyone can make good hot chocolate. She uses whole milk and normally I’m opposed because that’s a lot of fat and sugar and I’m pretty conscious about stuff like that, but I’m trying to be a team player here and plus, she uses big marshmallows and toasts them. She’s toasts the freakin’ marshmallows! It’s out of this world, really. And maybe she’s just doing that to be a team player, too. But it’s working. And I’m happy for Grandpa. I just…well, she’s not Grandma.

  1. I’m ummm oldddd (fifty this year). I would answere that yes, he likely does get butterflies and blushes and yes they most likely are having sex. Think about it logically, instead of emotionally and you’ll get it. At what point on the age scale do you think humans cease to be fully human? When do you personally plan on having that final birthday that means your love life has died? What number declares to the world that you will never have a loving sexual relationship again? LOL yes, just think about it.

    1. Hello 🙂 I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I would like to clarify that this is a creative piece written from the perspective of someone younger than me.
