Scene from last Friday, as I was driving the kids to school.
“Train in Vain” comes on satellite radio.
MGM (6): “This song sucks!”
Me: (Dumbfounded. Not sure how to respond).
- Should I chastise MGM for using an ugly, quasi profane word?
- Is the rage better directed at myself, from whose lips I am confident he first heard that slur uttered?
- Or should I berate him for denigrating The Clash? Because “Train in Vain” definitely does not suck.
