The word ‘epic’ is popular at the moment, being used repeated to described stunts and other actions which you or your friends may have seen, or even posted, on various social media channels.
For example, ‘let’s make an epic fail video and pretend to fall off of our skateboards onto our a**es, really hard’!
Some of these are real, other scripted.
But that misses the point entirely.
When we become obsessed with seeking out the ‘epic’, and consuming montages of ‘epic’ for long periods of time, or even go so far as to script a fake ‘epic’ moment, we – by definition – ruin the epic.
What’s really epic is you, right now.
And yes, it can be really funny when something ‘epic’ happens.
On it’s own.
