Drip-Drop (0-3 points)
Mantra: What has recycling ever done for me?
Spirit Animal: Ronald Reagan
Drip-Drops possess little to no hippie blood and are very skeptical of words like organic, natural and earth-friendly. They feel most comfortable in the company of like-minded Drip-Drops who share their love of donating to charity, the golf channel and high-brow liquors. Drip-Drops never shop the clearance section, because if no one else wants it, why should they? Their yards are always well manicured.
Dixie Cup (4-7 points)
Mantra: I’ll give it a try.
Spirit Animal: Golden Doodle
Dixie Cups dabble in the Hippie arts but just can’t lean in all the way. They want to use non-toxic deodorant and face cream, but they also don’t want to smell like dinner and really like what they see from Botox. Dixie Cups fantasize about dipping their toe in the pool of recreational drugs, but end up snuggling with their old pal, Pinot Noir, instead – it’s just easier. They are hella good dancers.
Solo Cup (8-11 points)
Mantra: Have backpack, will travel.
Spirit Animal: Wild Caught Salmon
Solo Cups are super chill. They can build a yurt, play the sitar and make a bong out of a dried starfish – all while wearing a baby on their back! Solo Cups are gracious hosts who invite tons of friends to their backyard bonfires. They have freakish endurance for biking.
Punch Bowl (12-15 points)
Mantra: Love, peace and organic/GMO-free/sustainable/fair trade hair grease.
Spirit Animal: Aboriginal Coyote
Punch Bowls have so much Hippie Blood, it oozes out of their pores and is used to tie dye their hemp clothing. They live off the grid and only roll into “town” when it’s time to pick up the CSA box and raw milk. Solo cups can simultaneously breastfeed and smoke a joint. They make loyal friends.
