Song of the Day: Friday

Miss A surprised me today by inviting me out to lunch. It's payday so we both had a few nickels in our pockets. We went to Tiny's for lunch. I had the Cobb Salad (where I had to explain to the waiter that yes I knew which ingredients were actually in a Cobb Salad and I was okay with eating them!) and she had the fish and chips (I swear they must have spit on the fries to make them taste that good!).

Anyway, the music was an interesting mix: Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Simon & Garfunkel, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. When this song came on, I told Miss A about how this was my introduction to the Grateful Dead and then when I heard the rest of their music I realized why I'd never before heard of them; I thought it was crap in comparison. I must have scandalized the guy at the adjoining table (like all faithful Deadheads!) because he told me the names of two of their best, most perfect albums that I should listen to from beginning to end (but they slipped my mind!). He also said that I probably had heard them even if I didn't realize, which I agree with since I was a classic rock girl in high school (boyfriend) so I just turned to the station and horrified my family by singing whatever came on. Like Led Zeppelin....
