the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Inspired by a month of birthdays

I can count on more than two hands the number of friends and family who have birthdays in July, and yes, sometimes at the last minute a gift card will do. But you can never of wrong (at least if your friend or family member is a girl) with a quirky set of salt and pepper shakers. I have about six sets myself, and the ones I don’t use in the kitchen are placed on shelves as decorative accessories. All of these especially would look good placed next to a stack of Very Intellectual Books or that collection of design magazines that you refuse to throw away. Or, you know, go ahead and season your grilled chicken. I am not the boss of you.

But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
