Unhappy midcentury hipsters


This Flickr set of midcentury home brochures has compelled me to add this Unhappy Hipsters-inspired caption to the above image:

Lillian paused to reflect on whether her protagonist - the immaculately dressed but relentlessly bored Lil - would finally start preparing the roast for that evening's dinner with Bill and his boss, or just drink the afternoon away.

Possibly more to come.

Couldn't Lillian do both?

Of course...although the roast and the dinner conversation would probably suffer greatly.
