Dear people of the future. They’ve said we can write a time capsule into our census form to tell you what it’s like in 2022 so maybe if you’re doing some research into your ancestors, you might be looking at this. I don’t know what you expected your ancestors to be like — probably, like, interesting people. But we’re not. Anyway, you literally wouldn’t believe what’s going on here. BTW we say literally a lot, and we don’t always mean literally. We are literally obsessed with claiming to be literally obsessed.

Anyway, you probably would believe what’s going on here because you’ve probably read about it in the history books. Sometimes, that’s the only thing that keeps us going, thinking that we will be in the history books as some kind of, like, Greatest Generation, who lived through interesting times and endured so much.
