It’s synonymous with pre-internet, urban adulthood. “Look at me, carelessly maneuvering chopsticks as I sit cross-legged on my overstuffed couch watching Friends.” Enjoy that Chinese food while you can. We both know that you’re going to have to dirty a fresh container if you want to heat it up in the microwave, tomorrow.
