You also Might Be Emerging if”
You are a middle aged family man… with no goatee, tatts or body piercings (that you can see)

You like to drink
but you’re not that fussy. You’ll even drink

And are reading
Which means you do a lot of
You are listening to
because its the only station your stupid el cheapo car stereo bought off e-bay can tune into due to the static from engine noise.
You use these words in a positive way:
surfing, eating, sleeping, church, life, work, reading, sex, friends
You use these words in a negative way:
traffic, gut, details, multanova
You have a sticker like this
On your environmentally friendly 1981 Landy
You have to look at these pictures twice because it might be you

Call yourself emergent Hamilton?!
You’re just not trying hard enough are you!?…
