my dead grandfather

Okay so I found my dead grandfather’s journal from 56 years ago. This is some old stuff, okay, and I was like yeah I’m gonna read a page or two. 

Basically he wrote down this road trip he did with a friend of his (name is Giulio) but at some point it gets so weird.

I’ll try my best to translate it from italian to english (english is not my first language) and well, I’m also having a hard time trying to read my gandpa’s writing cause he wrote like a drunk snail.

Now, beware, my grandfather was an italian man dedicated to work, church, work and work, who believed in the traditional family and all that Jazz. But at some point I reach this part where he writes: “yesterday me and Giulio slept in the same tent as mine was stolen at the gas station. As it was really cold, we slept close. In the middle of the night I realized that the warmth next to me did not belong to my Nadia (his fiancé at the time, my grandmother). It was the most intense feeling I’ve ever felt”.

And I was like allright that’s some weird no homo bullshit but who cares.

BUT THEN IT JUST GETS WORSE.

“I was having a cigarette whilst Giulio was asleep in the car, having a nap before we hit the road again. In the midst of the smoke of my tobacco, I saw his face and thought that the woman who is going to marry him will be lucky”.

Grandpa, what the hell? 

BUT OH NO IT JUST GETS BETTER.

“We shared a bed. Old motel did not have spare rooms, it was awkward at first. Then I started thinking that the warmth of Giulio’s body is somehow becoming more familiar to me then Nadia’s.”

Now, I have like seventy more pages of this goddamn journal but I am pretty fucking sure my gandfather had the worst crush over his best friend.

so much of desi culture is about respecting your elders and obeying them unquestioningly, but we really REALLY need to talk about how abusive and bigoted so many of our grandparents were, how badly they fucked up our parents, and how we’re afraid to sit down and talk about their problems.

Is it wrong to get a tattoo on your thigh to honor someone, cause my family is telling me I shouldn't get a tattoo to honor my dead grandfather, I don't really know if I should listen to them, help?

You do you boo.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! 😍❤️

Today I’m going to one of the biggest shops/warehouses in Sweden, going there with a friend after work. Thank god I get to borrow my dad’s car for it, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to go. My car is still dead :( my grandfather is trying to understand what’s wrong with it.
So I’m feeling happy today (apart from the car thing) and it feels like it could be a really good day ! And the weather is lovely already at 6 am 😃😁

I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday and I hope that you all will have a lovely day 😘❤️

Lots of love xx

this was literally seconds after caroline had just finished asking me about my farm, and listen.. i was just minding my own business tryna buy some seeds ok? i could feel the tension in the room. it got like 10 degrees cooler in there. i thought i was about to witness one of the greatest mom fights of all time. like ‘caroline forgot to bring the potato salad to the potluck and jodi is about to throw tf down on her but lowkey’ kinda vibes you know? i didn’t know what to do i was stunned. i was like gtg gtg gtg. 

idk what kinda mom beef jodi and caroline have goin on but i honestly do not want any part of it. i did not inherit my dead grandfathers farm and move all the way out here to god-knows-where just to be thrown in the middle of your drama, jodi. i am escaping the stresses of everyday city life and i need you to respect that. jodi is the most passive aggressive untrustworthy shady hoe and i am not havin it. square the fuck up caroline bc jodi is comin for u girl

Kylo Ren: Omg, it’s you! You’re Darth Vader!

Force-ghost Anakin: You do know I renounced the dark side, killed the Emperor, and became one with the light side of the Force, right?

Kylo Ren: But you WERE Darth Vader.

Force-ghost Anakin: *sighs* Yes, and let me tell you kid, I slaughtered hundreds of Jedi. I killed or was directly responsible for the murder of millions of beings, and I regret all of it, as you will too someday, but you know what I didn’t do?

Kylo Ren: What?

Force-ghost Anakin: CARRY AROUND THE BURNED OUT SKULL OF MY DEAD GRANDFATHER. THAT IS CREEPY AF, BEN. LOOK AT YOUR LIFE, LOOK AT YOUR CHOICES.

Kylo Ren: ……

Force-ghost Anakin: *judging you so hard right now*
