Nevermind

One day you wake up and are confronted with the news that Nirvana's breakthrough album is twenty years old.  Has it been two decades since your twelve year old self bought that CD for a older friend's birthday party and immediately became the birthday girl's favorite party guest?  But oh, yes, it really has been twenty years since you showed up at the party with that tacky, see through red blouse with the black lace bra that frankly had nothing much to cover up.  Flat chested as you were, John C still found a reason to sneak you into a closet and make out with you while In Bloom blared in the background.

Back in the present I have been playing the album on my Ipod at the office.  My friend at Microsoft tells me that her radio station in Seattle has been playing Nevermind almost nonstop.
