My friend Drew and her co-worker came over to my house earlier this week to interview me about being a Millennial and what I thought about food products and different brands. Let me tell you my internet friend that I had many notes of social and political import to discuss, but instead, I shared the following:
2. I also believed that when my mother said, “They only sell that toy in the states,” she was telling the truth. Another lie that my mother told me? The “S” on your tag doesn’t stand for “small,” it stands for “STRETCH.”
3. I watched the Real World in awe of all these hip twenty-somethings who were so cool, especially the San Francisco cast with their babydoll dresses, velvet chokers, and crochet vests.
4. Whenever I have miscellaneous ingredients without any real meal plan, I’ll type them all in and include the word “recipe” in my google search. It turns up some recipe that I hadn’t thought of before and doesn’t require that I pull the dish out of the microwave half-way through and stir. Millennial Cooking 101!
5. I identify mostly with Millenials born in the early 80s, those who also watched shows like Hey Dude, Clarissa Explains It All, Roundhouse, Chip ‘N’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Ghostwriter and Ready or Not.
Also, Drew wrapped and decorated this wonderful present for Nathan.
Please note that Nathan’s hair has grown back considerably since the Susan Powter Makeover ’08 fiasco, but it’s coming in kind of spiky. He looks like he’s on the America’s Next Top Model requisite makeover episode starring as one of the girls who loses her weave only he didn’t have any attitude because he’s two and hasn’t been exposed to polyester hair. Yet.
