The Kid Picks Up My Gen X Sensitivities

"It used to be something, but then they sold out."
As a Generation X parent I have this artisanal affectation, which comes from having sought out the margins of mass culture in independent bookstores, record shops, politics, bicycles, facial hair, attire, and nutty food preferences.

I can't help but feel proud when the nine-year-old starts absorbing my innate malcontentedness.

When we walked by Voodoo Doughnuts on our way to Chen's Good Taste Restaurant he remarked that such doughnuts were over-produced and not the true way, like Sesame Doughnuts.

Sometimes not having to wait 20 minutes for a bit of fried dough and sugar makes all the difference, allowing the experience to be more authentic.
