Number one son was an aficionado of the Original.
Woe be unto him who tried to foist any New items on him. Perish the thought of Improved items as well. Same for Deluxe. Limited begone. Nope. He wanted the Original.
He was the purist goalie in the family. Try to get anything past him that was not what he considered original, from BBQ sauce to Kraft Italian salad dressing, and the howls could be heard to the Original high heavens.
Anything other than cheese and meat on a burger was grounds to ban that McDonald’s from his Original list. With an added Original pox upon the hapless server who served it up in such an Unoriginal fashion to him.
He was indeed the embodiment of the Original Sin.
He was a terrible consumer in training and the nightmare of all fiduciaries of our growth fetishistic enterprises and nation.
But after years in front of the television soaking in commercials, online Ad culture, and peer pressure he came around as all good potential productivity pods do. Now number one son wants everything new and improved in the world you can possibly imagine.
But since he is one of the Original Millennials he may be too late since the Original promise of trickle down has already been lapped up, swallowed , and sent elsewhere.
Maybe someone has an Original idea to solve this.
I haven’t heard it.
I have observed a lot of very Unoriginal silliness in between the TV commercials, Ad Banners, and pop up ads however.
So I hope he still only wants cheese and meat on his burger.
After all , it’s the Original.
