  •  Thanks! I appreciation your absolution . .. (6+ / 0-)

    although ironically (I think it's ironic, at least) a staple of the local classic rock station (yeah, who knew they still had those?) is Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son" - it almost seems like they're speaking directly to me!  

    OTOH,  I've been told that song has religious connotations that I quite frankly don't grasp, so maybe just maybe I'm interpreting it completely ass-backwardly.

      with dare I admit it, Ted Nugent and if my memory serves me, ZZ Top. This is why my most uttered response these days is; huh, could you repeat that..

        worst, in fact, than the time some youngsters in my extended family tricked me into going to see Celine Dion . . ..

          I don't know about it being worse, Celine Dion, damn. They punish severely at The Hague for much less than that. My most sincere condolences.

            for once and for all, as illustrated in the following recreation:

            Them: do you want to go to a Celine Dion concert?

            Me: who?

            Them: don't you mean "whom"?

            Me: who the fuck knows.

            Them: anyways, didn't you enjoy the Bruce Hornsby / Bonnie Raitt concert we took you to last year?

            Me: it wasn't awful

            Them: plus you love Suzi Quatro

            Me: who?

            Them: we saw you turning up the volume on the radio when "Stumblin In" came on . .

            Me:  I doubt that that happened, but if so, so what?

            Them: well, Celine Dion is just like Suzi Quatro.

            Me: (unenthusiastically) OK, I'll go.

            a word to any oldsters out there - believe me, Celine & Suzi are nothing alike . .. just trying to warn you if your kids / grandkids try to trick you about this.
