i hope that for the rest of my life i get to continue to hear people use the phrase “work hard, play hard” with no trace of irony

and hear about people wanting to only make “meaningful connections” as if that actually means anything

i also hope “being mindful” and “being present” survive and remain a part of the american lexicon well into the 21st century

ok y’all i’m done being snarky

just, hey baby, i’m also done with hearing the same empty-ass phrases every day of this shared waking nightmare that we are, all of us, doomed to live out until we get totally vaporized by a foreign entity . . . real or imagined!!!
