John F. Kennedy @ Boston – 21st Century
VOTE FOR THE FUTURE. VOTE FOR YOUTH. VOTE FOR PROSPERITY. KENNEDY FOR PRESIDENT 2040.
You know when you really have to take an enormous dump, but at the same time, you just have to do something extremely important? Well, I am in that situation right fucking now. Do you know what I should be doing here? I knew this would happen. Those sashimi pieces from Kyoto were questionable, and that robotic cook also sounded like a jackass. I am sweating like hell and I am shivering because I don’t know what I am doing.
Why do I have to wait in this godforsaken hallway? Every second feels like an eternity. Why didn’t dad make Bobby do this? I wonder if the people before me knew the journey they were embarking on. What does it mean to lead? I guess you must have thought about this too at some point. You’re thrown into a situation you’re clueless about, but when shit hits the fan you have to man up and act as if you know what you are doing? Fake it till you make it as they say. Well, to be honest, I don’t know what I am talking about. I am still the same kid chasing after pretty girls in the schoolyard.
There has been so much change within a decade. I remember when we would be chilling on Instagram and Tinder. Now I have all these new devices that know more about me than I know about myself. Am I making my own decisions or is it the algorithm making the decisions? I also heard rumours about this Walt Disney fellow working on something that will revolutionize the world. It’s probably yet another gadget that will make humanity wish for the past. Fuck. I can’t be thinking about this. Not now.
I wonder how the world was before the 2000s. It must have been a hell of a lot more difficult to get around. But, people were able to live and breathe without all the stuff we have today. How did you tell a person you were late for something? Maybe we all had to be way more punctual. Who would have thought that the kids of the world would be listening to K-pop and Anglo Chinese music? Life must have been simpler back then. Or was it? I am not too sure, it’s just too long ago to even fathom.
Oh shit, they are applauding now. That’s my clue. Alright, keep calm and act cool. I have been rehearsing for a long time now. “Ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the United States of America; John Fitzgerald Kennedy!” Alright, let’s go.
