You don't have to be a certain age to be considered a grandpa. Many millennials have assumed the role wholeheartedly, from the lifestyle choices to even the mannerisms. "Millennial grandpas" enjoy prolonged periods spent in their pajamas, couch potatoing, channel surfing sprees and undeclared flatulence. It's a way of life that not everyone is suited for.
