#579 – the met




This was a little bit of commentary on Yelper culture and people’s fear of not having the universally biggest & best possible experience at all times. I had this fear for a while and eventually realized I was having an identical experience to everyone else with the same anxiety, which meant it couldn’t possibly be the best – only the safest. Not that there’s anything wrong with safety… it’s just not a marker of taste the way the wearer thinks it is. Obviously the biggest fine art museum falls into the “best possible” category, as does listening to classical & jazz, and like, living in New York.
