I actually think we believe this as a culture. (Tom is a great character—by far the best on the show in my opinion—because he is so representatively American, simultaneously obsessed with entrepreneurialism and romantic love and leisure.)
Anyway I am fascinated with our intense nonrational relationship to consumer goods. Like, I almost cried recently when a 15-year-old plastic spatula broke. Sarah had that spatula before we even started dating. We’d used that spatula the first time we cooked together! That spatula was supposed to last forever but then it abandoned us.
And that, I’m afraid, is the true way of things, Tom. Like us, they are here for only a little while. Unlike us, when they stop working we cannot bequeath them to the dirt to help grow the grass we love or whatever. And there’s the rub.
This is the first time I’ve had to do a real food shopping run basically since I started at HowAboutWe in May. So I panicked and only bought fruits and vegetables. #iHaveProblems #ChickenProbablyWouldveBeenAGoodIdea #TraderJoes
This is Lily, who is @lilsy02 on instagram. She plays Young Hazel in the #tfiosmovie and as a result just got her head shaved. She was so great about it (I bawled), and now hopes to donate her hair. Thank you Lily!
