I’d like to point out that the dear lady who made me a part of Psychology Today article clearly has little contact with actual hipsters. And it’s fun to think that, by her estimation, I made the cut.
Or…maybe…she doesn’t really think of me that way. Maybe she knows exactly what a hipster is, and simply cast me in that character because it made for good copy.
In interest of our real objective, the truth is very bendy.
