Grandmothers teach us a lot of important things, often entertaining us at the same time.
tonight my abuelita whispered, “I want to show you the most beautiful girl in the world,” solemnly leading me to a table packed with old family photos. with one, shaky finger, she pointed, slowly, to a photo... of herself— david bynch (@soalexgoes) December 31, 2018

My 87-year-old grandma has played Animal Crossing New Leaf on her 3DS every single day for the past 4 years now.— Paul ⚔️ Hubans (@phubans) January 1, 2019
Her 3DS finally broke this year, so we got her a new one for Christmas. During a system transfer I checked her activity log: pic.twitter.com/R33KycrW4q
