What is a boomerang kid? Ever feel alone in the fact that rent, utilities, food and loans have totally beat you into submission? Now that you’ve landed back at home base, do you feel alone in a hometown that everyone seems to have evacuated except for the weird people who were always a little mean to you when you were younger? Or maybe you’ve felt strange about the fact that you actually like living with your parents? Or maybe you’re just another one of those lazy, good-for-nothing, bratty Millenials, all of whom self-righteous Baby Boomers and Gen Xers keep scapegoating for the nation’s problems even though our ships have only begun to set sail–sailing out into the murky, polluted, corrupted, economically depressed waters they’ve laid out for us.
