This past weekend Tory invited me to her anual family reunion in The Middle of Nowhere. It was a lovely weekend filled with roadtrip fast food, better homemade food, wonderful people, and a gaggle of minicousins who really enjoyed when I spun them on the tire swing.*

But I must say, the big take-away from the trip was the realization that despite generational gaps, differences in cultural upbringings, and disparities in values, there are some universal beliefs that connect us all.

Tory’s Grandmother: I’ve been learning how to use Facebook!
Polly: Wow, really?! My Nana has never even been on a computer.
Tory’s Grandmother: It’s a nice way to keep in touch.
Polly: Yes, I love how I can stay connected to my friends who live really far away!
Tory’s Grandmother: But some people have too many pictures of their babies on the Timeline. A few pictures is nice, but some people put up pictures every day. I don’t care for it.
Polly: Word, Tory’s Grandmother. Word.

*If anyone is looking for an irregular pectoral workout, spinning 2-3 children on a tire swing will leave you surprisingly sore the next day.


One Response to “Universalities”

    1) My mini-cousins LOVED you
    2) My same age as me cousin LOVED you
    3) My grandparents LOVVEEEEEE you.
    4) My Me-Ma is the BEST isn’t she? Also, I love that she hid my one cousin from her feed because too much babies. She’d rather read my feminist rants and Nerdy ramblings than your babies. HA.
