If I was a character in a Wes Anderson movie, I would have a house full of fossils and minerals which would be very neat and in a certain order. I would have some beautiful old cabinets and every little tooth or mineral would have a little handwritten note attached to it. In the afternoon I would lie down and have a nap from exactly 2 pm to 4 pm. After the nap I would just sit exactly in the middle of that forest green couch and read Frankenstein with my two cats sitting on each side of me. In this vision I would live through a lot of adventures, always bringing something home from my digs. Tall plants would cover the stairs and entryways to the rooms, because nobody would ever cut them or restrict them.
I would always wear themed berets, wondering Is it just ironic or already inappropriate to look at fish fossils while wearing a sushi beret? I don’t eat fish, but I feel weird about that. Then again I might be overthinking things, considering old fish bones probably feel rather indifferent about embroidery depicting food made from their descendents. Then I would go on admiring fossils and geological exhibition pieces, reading about earth history, feeling like this is the path for me. Of course, my palaeontology inspiration would be portrayed by Bill Murray and by the end of the movie I would finally get to meet him.
Mendl’s would also be part of my Wes Anderson universe, so I would have a little box of treats each Sunday morning, in stressful situations you would always find me eating a tiny cake on said forest green couch while breathing unsteady. Obviously my cats would greet the guests by first walking around my symmetrically and then walking around the guests. Of course, guests would be rare, because I would prefer not to be disturbed in my regulated daily routine. Much rather I would pick up flowers at the same shop as always, before drinking a cup of tea.
