8 Crazy Adventures To Go On In Ontario If You And Your Friends Are Secretly Grandmas

There exists a special class of young adults that I like to call the "Millennial Grandmas".  It consists of both male and female individuals who are in their twenties (a.k.a. the primes of their lives) but do not adhere to the typical avocado-toast-every-morning, go-out-every-night lifestyle of their millennial peers.

Instead, Millennial Grandmas enjoy home clothes, midday naps, Love It Or List It re-runs, and strict, 9 pm bed times. While all of their friends are chasing their dreams and getting married, they remain as potatoes at home; eating peanut butter straight from the jar and letting all of their house plants die from neglect. Millennial Grandmas also enable each other to be this way, and that is a key reason why many of them become great friends with each other in the first place.

But Millennial Grandmas need excitement in their lives too. Here are 10 crazy adventures to go on if you and your friends are grandmas:
