Why GenEx and Not GenX?

It was purely a typo to write out GenEx for the blog name.  It is not like I don’t know that’s not how to spell it.  But the blunder got me thinking, what is my subconscious trying to say?  It took all of 3 seconds to tap into it.  EXHAUSTED – my generation has been working and saving feverishly in our 401K’s for 25+ years.  We have been on the hamster wheel trying to approach the wealth of our parents, the baby boomers, with no hope in sight.  Oh, how nice it would be to be a millennial and throw up our hands and say we can’t pay off student loan debt, buy a house, have kids, OR save for retirement.  What we can do is pay $6 for a coffee.  EXUBERANT – Are we the last generation to feel joy and gratitude?  It feels that way sometimes.  Everyone is so angry at everything today.  There are other EX’s I could add to the list EXTROADINARY, some EXPATs, EXPERIENCED, possibly in the midst of an EXISTENTIAL crisis, in the mean time I need to go out and see if I can buy the name too.
