#restingboomerface

Ahem, how should I say this without being self-deprecating? I’m waiting for my next bit of poem-writing creativity to strike, so in the meantime, here’s a little bit of nonsense…

I’ve been thinking about the generic resting faces of the generations as seen by me, a millennial, and being in a silly mood, I decided to put together what I believe to be the message that they give off.

Resting Boomer Face: Why aren’t you ruining your life exactly the same way I did to mine?

Resting Gen X face: Is my all-knowing face on? It better be on because I know things, in fact I know all the things, and everyone needs to understand this! I’m the new boss in town!

Resting Millenial Face: Is my poker face on? I hope it’s on because I don’t want anyone to catch on to how little I know and how generally confused I am.

Resting Gen Z Face: Y’all full of shit aren’t you? I’m going to understand the nuance of your bullshit in a bunch of years, won’t I? That’s aight, watch me do this dance tho

And there you have it, folks, much of humanity explained in a few mere sentences.
