"I'm Gen X. I just sit on the sidelines and watch the world burn." The other day I was telling a young 'un about this skit and she goes, "Oh, yeah, I always forget about Generation X." Mmmmhmmmm, that's about right. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.va...-generation-x-might-be-our-last-best-hope/amp Don't agree with the idyllic childhood described in this article. Most of us that I know were lonely, neglected latchkey kids of divorce, but this: "Though much derided, members of my generation turn out to be something like Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca—we’ve seen everything and grown tired of history and all the fighting and so have opened our own little joint at the edge of the desert, the last outpost in a world gone mad, the last light in the last saloon on the darkest night of the year." Our TV shows, like Friends, were about finding that little community somewhere. Somewhere we can laugh at the world, at ourselves, and not feel so bad about it all. ------------------------------------ "I never really believed the notion of a generation. If four people are born every second of every day, how can you have a generation? But I get it now. A generation is the creation of shared experiences, the things that happened, the things you all did and listened to and read and went through and, as important, the things that did not happen." So, your mission, should you choose to accept it: Share your take on being part of your generation. And, "I'll just sit back and do nothing like a referee at wrestlemania." ***yes, I know they're not refereeing wrestling, but, ice cream.
