How Hipster Are Your Grandparents?
Your grandparents are just...ya know...your grandparents. They resist stereotypes, which also happens to be very anti-hipster. Good for them!
It might be time to sit them down and explain what a hipster is, because they're dangerously close to colliding with one on a fixed-gear bike.
You have the coolest grandparent(s) on the block! Take them out for a cold glass of kombucha and ask if they have tales from their beatnik days.
