THE MILLENNIAL: TALE OF THE RING

Bottomline: Our dreamer is a staunch believer in betting, and is therefore a loyal subscriber to several sites that promise quick bucks after minimum capital investment with abundance of good luck

Not just any ring, dear readers, the ring that sets ladies after each other’s wigs and gets them high off day dreams that ends with them on a honey moon in an unmentionable island, surrounded by cerulean water and picturesque bungalows by the beach, it is the ring their mother read to them every night, because it is deeply embedded in the minds of girls that fairy tales exist, the world owes them a prince charming.

Copper: Of blessors and early retirement
The ring may come in the form of a sixty something-grey-haired-midlife crisis-experiencing man who wants to have a good time with a bubbly girl, while riding around in his large, heavily tinted car. Our millennial, let’s call her Jane, likes high end face products, trips abroad on the weekend topped with the envious stares of her college mates when he parks his machine by their clothes line. Jane may seem vapidly materialistic, but she is much more. She has several saving accounts and investments that she milks from said blessor, which helps her sleep easy at night.

Aluminum: Of hustlers and the night life
Hopefully you have caught on, by now you know that the ring takes many forms. In this one, it manifests the dreamer. He draws his aspirations from rappers and drug lords, he is El Chapo, and lucky Jane will be the queen of his phantom empire. Our dreamer is a staunch believer in betting, and is therefore a loyal subscriber to several sites that promise quick bucks after minimum capital investment with abundance of good luck.

Steel: Of clipboards and pencils
In this form of our flexible, multi-faceted ring, we have our reader. He eats, breathes and lives books. He mutters math formulas and theories like the lyrics of a song. Mostly clad in a neat button down, an expertly ironed pair of khaki pants and a pair of glasses that never quite sit right on his face. Jane sees a future with him, he pulls her chair and sends her good morning texts. Unfortunately, with the uptight life he is living, he will most probably morph into a blessor when he no longer finds fulfillment in Jane and their soon to be born noisy children.

Magnesium: Of private schools and designer shirts
The ring this time takes the form of well fed, pocket-money-carrying ‘mama boys’. We always have one of them trotting the university highways with a group of loud girls. He thinks he is edgy, so dose his friends who do unprintable things in dark alleyways. In fact, our designer shirt clad friend is so edgy that he had blonde dreadlocks phase (before he had to shave it, as per his mother’s wishes). He fools Jane into a hazy two month relationship, all packaged into a convincing box filled with an American accent(he is the type who says ‘fries’ instead of ‘chips’) and exuberant stories about family trips abroad, embellished with close relationships with people in high places.

Too tight, too loose
Dearest Jane, the embodiment of our millennial. The ring probably is ill fitting or oddly unappealing. The intimate relationship that you have formed with this inanimate object has consumed your time, thoughts and sanity. The ring is not the problem though, it is the mindset behind it.
