When we were in Brooklyn, we played Spot the Hipster.
From this, we learned that to pass as hipsters
the other half would need to grow a beard,
and I would need to get a fringe.
There seemed to be other attributes
but these are the ones that stuck out.
Mainly as he’s never going to grow a beard
and I don’t suit fringes.
Once home, I happened upon this print
by Brit illustrator Jenni Sparks…
“Things Hipsters Like”.
Turns out I’m halfway to being a hipster.
I love my Diana, my old gameboy, coloured bikes,
tea in china cups, brogues (but on the other half, not me)
typewriters, old record players (and music) and kitsch tees.
Oh yes, and I drink soya milk.
(Normal milk and I are not friends.)
The rest isn’t me. So I’m about 50% hipster.
50% unhipster. (Or whatever a non hipster is!)
How about you?
What percentage do you work out to be?
P.S. I just did the maths.
I’m actually about 64.28% hipster.
Not sure if that’s better or worse!
