Millennials Will Make The Coolest Grandparents

, , , , | Hopeless | January 23, 2018

I am a woman in her late 20s, and a lifelong fantasy geek. At the department store where I work, I pass a woman in her 60s wearing a Harry Potter shirt. I compliment her on it and move on. A few months later, a woman is purchasing something at my register, and I compliment her on her Disney-brand purse. We strike up a conversation about Disneyland that veers into Universal Studios, and I recognize her as the woman I had seen earlier.

Now this woman stops by my section when she comes in and notices I’m not busy, and we happily talk about fandoms old and new, books, movies, comics, theme parks, fanworks, etc. She told me she enjoys talking with me, because no one her age is interested in these things, and only her grandchildren are willing to geek out with her. I assured her I’m more than happy to gush about my favorites things, anytime.

In a few decades, when I’m the grandmother wearing a Harry Potter shirt and carrying a Disney purse, I hope there will be people willing to geek out with me!
