Live it up!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — attaikede @ 7:29 pm

I can’t remember who I had this conversation with … I was travelling somewhere and chatting with the stranger sitting next to me. We were talking about the various crises s going on right now.

It’s kind of hard to believe, cuz the supermarkets that you and I shop at are still full of plentiful delicious food, but there have been food riots in some countries! Food prices are definitely going up – I’ve noticed it in the small chinese supermarket I buy stuff from. Things are definitely becoming more expensive.

Gas riots too! Aren’t those truckers in Spain still on strike? And don’t forget the financial crisis! Everybody is living on debt. The American savings rate is 0% and people can’t even pay their mortgages!

Me and the guy I was chatting with concluded that we might be the last generation to be able to live in the carefree way we do now. I started thinking .. we should live it up now while we can!! Sleep with the light on! Drive to your corner store! Buy cherries in the middle of winter! Throw away your left overs! Buy 50 pairs of shoes on your credit card! Buy a giant gas guzzling SUV!

Seriously! Better get all your wasteful urges satisfied now while you can, cuz who knows! They’ll probably be criminalized by future generations!!



  1. In an effort to conserve (energy, gas consumption, money…etc.) I recently purchased a push reel mower (you know, the old-fashioned kind) and am currently in the middle of mowing my 1/2 acre of lawn with it. I’m getting exercise, a tan AND saving the environment and some money….what could be more exciting? So what if it takes me the better part of a week to get one chore done? :P
