Idaho Granny & Teen Face-Off In An Epic Drag Race [PICS 😍]
A Moment Like This
Kelly Clarkson was right. Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this. If we had to ballpark it, this particular moment is somewhere between 70-to-80 years in the making. But you won't hear us complaining.
If there's one thing our team of thirty and forty-somethings believe, it's that patience is a virtue and skinny jeans are timeless. Okay, so two things. All the same, if not for the age-old proverb, we might have thrown in the proverbial towel.
It Happened One Night
Then, it happened. In an instant, a casual stroll through Boise Townsquare Mall escalated from ordinary to extraordinary when we discovered an Idaho granny and teen about to face-off in an epic drag race.
Granny sat atop her steed-like motorized wheelchair ready to burn rubber. The teen steadied himself on the kiddie quad he rented for eight minutes.
And then they were off. We don't know what spurred the most random drag race of the 21st Century, but it was epic. Like, EPIC. And the crash encounter with the mall kiosk?! Amazing.
See how it all went down in the spectacular gallery below!
If you're only as old as you feel, this Idaho granny is in her prime. We don't know this heroine's name, but we're forever inspired by her woman-child spirit. As our way of saying thanks, we gathered some of our favorite quotes about aging gracefully and playfully!
