Hypothetical question: Say you're sitting at work with your iPod on shuffle, and someone comes up to your desk to ask you a work question. When you pull your earbuds out they say, "So what are you listening to?" and the answer to the question, at that exact moment, happens to be a sappy love song from your childhood called "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" by England Dan and John Ford Coley -- do you admit this?
I think I muttered something about OK Go's new CD and then quickly changed the subject, because I'm not talkin' bout my linen.*
I feel so ashamed for two reasons. One, for having this song on my iPod. Two, for lying about it. Also, I really do miss your smile.
*yes, that's what I thought it said when I was a kid. I figured maybe she stole his linen and he wanted it back.
