What a fuckin’ weird world we live in.

Not sure why it’s on my mind today, but man, if I went back and talked to early-20-something me about things now…

I would believe that the Republicans had basically aligned with Russia, but for the wrong reasons – I’d be all “Damn, that perestroika and glasnost stuff really worked out!” I’d also believe that I still love stickers and cats and animals in general, and still cannot go to the grocery store without forgetting *something*.

The rest of *waves arms at everything* – I probably wouldn’t be able to wrap my head around.

World stuff:
– That TFG was actually the President
– That folks literally tried to overthrow the fucking government
– That saying “fascism is bad” would be called “divisive”
– That a President probably sold secrets to foreign governments and likely won’t face any consequences for it
– That we’d have a damn plague and half the country would not want to do anything to stop it, so it’s gone on for 30 odd months now, and we have a new one, too!
– The MaryJane getting legalized all over the place
– That despite a lot of talk about global warming and threats to the environment, we’d have made little to no progress

Personal stuff:
– That I was pretty much a bleeding heart liberal
– Getting up early (for me) on a Saturday to get to the farmers market on a routine basis
– Being a cherry tomato snob
– That my kitchen would have 3 different kinds of sea salt and I would use all of them
– That I’d be working in an ENGINEERING department!
– That adequate pockets in ladies clothing would still be a goddamned novelty.

Really, never would have seen any of this coming AT ALL.
