It came up in conversation at work the other day that I am a hippie.
Not a dirty hippie, mind you. I shower every single day (but will admit to skipping a shower on the weekend from time to time) and don’t generally wear hemp or whatever, but I am an openly yuppie hippie.
I don’t eat high fructose corn syrup or trans-fat.
I prefer alternative medicines and don’t drug myself whenever possible (my new-found allergies require some heavy duty drugs for which there is not a natural cure as far as I can tell).
I’d rather walk or ride bikes than drive a car.
I love being outside.
So if that makes me a hippie, then I am a loud and proud urban yuppie hippie.
