Everyone Needs Grandparents by

When I was at school some friends had four grandparents. I had none. I missed out on extra presents and treats. I felt deprived but I’m making up for lost time now. I’ve started adopting grandparents and have had five so far. I get talking, persuade them to go for a ride, and adopt them. Some don’t last. Some are fussy eaters and don’t eat normal food like burgers and pizza. I provide food and shelter and company but they fade away far too quickly. One lasted only two days, but there are plenty more around. Everyone should have grandparents.
