My work's weekly staff video conference always opens with a survey question. This week's question: What was the first album you owned?

Jon: 2 Live Crew – As Nasty As They Wanna Be.
The Rest of the Staff: [pause]


I am driving the boy and girl home from school.

Jon: What time did you wake up this morning?
The Boy: 7:00am.
Jon: That late?
The Girl: No, 5:00am…and you are listening to Los Angeles!

Did she just reference Soul Coughing's "Screenwriter's Blues"?

I come upon Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" on the radio.

The Boy: Is this a remix?


The boy now dresses like Edgar on You're the Worst.


I drop the boy off for swimming at a local community college.

Whenever I see Asian students at a community college, I wonder if their parents are disappointed. Their parents are probably just undocumented, though, or desperate for their children to attend college in America.
