asked me if I wanted to go see New Kids On the Block. And while I would love to tell you that she was being sarcastic, she was just being younger than me.

What can be worse than middle-aged New Kids? And seriously? I was in college when they came out and I was trying to be all dark and moody at that time by listening to The Cure , while all the youngsters were "Hangin' Tough" and putting stickers on their Trapper Keeper.

And she actually asked me twice because, evidently, my facial expression the first time was not traumatizing enough.
