Why do people get all existential only when they’re bored?
I remember first reading the word existential from Calvin and Hobbes when I was in my early teens. I recall needing to look up the word in a dictionary and subsequently feeling slightly embarassed that I had to, when this 6 year old kid is using it in casual conversation. Then I recall wondering whether or not the nature of Hobbes was a comment on existentialism. Is he real? Did it matter?
But then transformers came on and I promptly forgot about the question…until today when writing this.
