    it’s springtime and everyone’s getting kissed 

    nd since no one is innerested in smooching with me, i will harken back to the glory days of yesteryear when i was lucky enough to play spin the bottle with one angela romano, my bestfriends girlfriend.

    yes, ironically enough the cars had just released that very same record when i was in sixth grade about to get my mind blown and even stranger, that first cars record was the first one that i ever bought with my own money.

    and to show you how long ago that was, my mom gave me $20 and with that money i bought steve martin’s comedy is not pretty, meatloaf’s bat out of hell, and the cars self titled debut.

    anyhow, angela was dating dave osbourne. we were at bethany radzinski’s house, all the girls had schemed all week about this party, completely leaving us boys in the dark in more ways than one.

    there was a seance, there were fruit drinks, there was a bottle, and there was a dark bathroom.

    twice i spun the bottle, twice it landed on angela.

    i couldnt believe what happened in that bathroom.

    when i came home my mom looked at my eyes and accused me of being on drugs.

    i said im not on drugs mom, i just spent all my money on records.

    logic always worked on my mom, one of the first female computer geniuses.

    anyhow, i dont think i ever thanked angela properly.

    whereever you are, thank you.
