This poster stirred up some strange emotions inside of me. The first ilk:
- Fuck yeah! Life is my goddamn oyster. It's totally ok for me to have everything I want. I want a successful career, a great marriage, fancy shoes, ridiculous handbags, a Danish console to hang many frames above, if I'm so inclined, and on and on. I earned it, I deserrrrve it.
Contrasted with the second wave of feelers:
- It's totally NOT ok for me to have everything I want. I should only have what I really NEED (and maybe a couple frills to keep things interesting). Why should I have everything while the less fortunate have nothing? I should not engage in rampant consumerism just because I can.
Moral of the story: No more letterpress posters for this gal.
