The video is part of a series from I Miss Drugs, a Twitter feed and a series of very short web videos that skewer the all-too-familiar-to-me life of the gently aging hipster. It reminds me a little bit of an update on Will Farrell’s infamous “Maybe later we’ll go to Bed Bath & Beyond” bit from Old School a decade ago… except of course they’re making jokes about Etsy and Trader Joe’s. Witness:
It’s funny: in my 20s, these videos would have scared me, and tossed me into a bratty and rebellious introspective tailspin of, “OMG I REFUSE TO BE DOOMED TO BECOMING OLD AND BORING!” From the perspective of the later half of my 30s, however, I have a total sense of comfort with where I’m at and what I’m doing. Sometimes, that involves being out until 4am dancing my ass off, but more often involves dorking out over an ugly pillow I’m madly in love with, or watching Hulu with my husband while our kid sleeps in his closet.
Yeah, every once in a while I miss the wild chaos of my early 20s, but mostly I’m just REALLY INTO THIS FUCKING PILLOW. Domesticity fits comfortably. There’s not much else to prove.
So, what are some of your favorite #imissdrugs moments?
