Burning Down The House

"I had the best dream ever," I said to my shrink. "I dreamed that it was exam day and I hadn't studied, but each time I went into the exam room I knew all the answers anyway."

"What was the first thing you thought about when you woke up from that dream," my shrink asked.

"How much I loved the Atwood short story I read before going to bed," I replied.

"What was the story about," she responded.

"The Millenial generation getting tired of Baby Boomers and, at first, randomly killing them, then starving them to death, then finally burning them alive while playing techno music," I replied. "The old people go to Generation X for help and my generation tells them to fuck off."

"That's reasonable then," she said. "You read the short story you've been wanting to read for your entire life. Your brain just rewarded you."
