A shout out to my fellow Gen Xers...

As the Friends frenzy continues, Gen X is the star but does anyone even care?

"But the truth is, those six friends are Generation Xers through and through, members of a group that has a reputation for being overlooked and squeezed out of the picture. That makes it extra-ironic that the people who created Friends are baby boomers, and that the people who get credit for keeping the show alive are millennials and Gen Z. When we keep looking at Friends, over and over, what we’re really looking at is Generation X. A heightened, not entirely realistic version of Generation X, but a version that has something in common with the actual generation. Even if it may feel like the culture has always deemed us irrelevant (and continues to do so), every time someone streams an episode of Friends to see what’s happening at Central Perk, it’s proof that the Gen X experience not only counts for something. It actually still resonates."
