Reactionary Tales

Facebook Friday 7/21/17

Hey, hey! It’s Facebook Friday!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

So let’s get to it!

This past week has been a slow one. I didn’t even get to be on Facebook as much as I normally am because of surprise party shenanigans and hosting my mother in my home for a week (post about that coming soon). However, I did get to share this meme yesterday and it was totally relatable these past two days:

I did a buddy read with my girl Lana that we ended up putting on the DNF shelf a few days ago and instead we started Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews and I’ve had the above syndrome for 2 days. It consists of me going to bed at 12am (or later) knowing I have to wake up at 6am for work. The book is so addicting! I’ll probably finish it tonight and possibly review it here because it’s so amazing. Besides, it’s Friday! I have all weekend to sleep!

Next up: the video. I encourage you to please watch it all the way through! There’s a show called Little Big Shots and Steve Harvey is the host. I don’t actually watch these things on TV cause I don’t have cable or anything like that but occasionally I’ll watch a video that pops up in my feed. This one features two grandmas. One is 103 and the other one 98. They have been best friends since they were children! I have to warn you that they curse a little bit but if you don’t chuckle or even crack a smile after watching these two then you’re not human:

They are so adorable! I hope I live to be their age and have my best friend I can banter with just like them!Β β™₯β™₯

Lastly, I didn’t share any photos to Facebook but here’s one of me trying to explain to my grandma where she’s supposed to look when you take a selfie:

I don’t make it a habit of taking selfies but my grandma wanted one. She turned 75 on Monday. Can you tell I’m pointing to the camera circle? She wanted to know where to look and I was pointing to the camera circle while telling her to just look straight ahead and of course I snapped a picture of that. She now knows how to continue to be “hip” with her new smartphone.

 

That’s all for today! Did you see anything fun or interesting on social media this week? Let me know in the comments below!

      I know right. If I make it 103, I’m going to be just like them! You’ve nothing to lose at that age so you can get away with saying whatever you want!

    Over a hundred years! Blessings!
