January 3rd, 2019: The Triumph of Capitalism, or, On Becoming “My Parents’ Generation”
by Eli S. Evans
Question: Looking back on your life in 2018, what do you see?
Answer: Progressive inclinations, bourgeois indulgences.
Question: How would you assess your workplace performance?
Answer: Good enough not to have justified the inconvenience of having to replace me, apparently.
Question: How are you feeling about yourself as the New Year begins?
Answer: Like I’m not getting any younger, I’m not getting any better looking, and my future is my present – so I might as well love myself just the way I am.
