We did it before it was cool. Not because we were hipsters. Because we had no choice. When all you have to drink from is a mason jar, then that’s what you drink from. When all you have to wear are clothes that have been worn by others first, that’s what you wear. When all you have to eat is food you’ve grown and prepared yourself, that’s what you eat.
It was that or go thirsty, naked, and hungry. Imagine our surprise when other people started doing it and calling it “cool”.
At least, that’s what they said it was.
