Bathroom Monologue: Exaggeration

Nobody has headaches; they have migraines.

Nobody throws fits; they have nervous breakdowns.

Nobody has ideas; they have revelations.

Nobody’s smart; they’re geniuses.

Soldiers went from shellshock to post traumatic stress disorder

Wars became foreign conflicts

Deaths became collateral damage

Yet every new Apple product is a Gutenberg Moment.

Every long movie is an epic.

Every crime is the worst act in the history of its context.

It’s a hyperbolic curve of thought.

  1. Funny because it's true. And no one has a bright idea anymore, it's an epiphany or nothing.

  2. We're living in a time where people's senses are dulled by all the action around them. They need to be told something is extreme to 'feel' it.
