Really Lost Generation
Walked by some kids having a soccer (football to you foreigners) practice. Cannot have the Hammer off her leash around kids doing organized sports. Her joining such organized groups adds a touch of chaos to whatever it is the coach is trying to organize - something many coaches resent. Their coach, (and his inevitable English fucking accent) had just sent them for a spin around the pitch. They were not very old. Maybe ten. Out of the whole lot of them just one looked like he could run and that was only because the rest of his team looked they were not going to make the whole way 'round.
I told the lad so but he could not say anything back because he was already winded after having ran half way around his field of World Cup dreams.
We and our computer masters are developing one generation after another that are all feebs. No wonder we have turned our sports heroes into motherfucking gods. They are not like the rest of us. They can run, jump, skate, throw shit. We can type and play electronic games.
I am a member of the Blank Generation. We were famous for being able to outdrink a thirsty horse, outrun the fucking cops and outdope the hippies . We were a generation of Gretzkys. A Great One on every block.
Looks to me like the generation born about the time Osama dialed 9-1-1 for us ought to be called something. Something that says something about them and us. Something like the Really Lost Generation
