This brought back a funny memory from, oh I don’t know, at least ten years ago. I called my then-boyfriend (a classic-rock kinda guy) because for some reason, I couldn’t get the sound to work on my computer and I wanted to listen to a new CD. I tried everything he told me to do, and in frustration, he finally said it might have something to do with the CD. “What CD is it?” he said.
And since he was always accusing me of being a music snob (I’m really not – I’m more of a music nerd), I apologetically said, “Um, it’s the new Sufjan Stevens CD.” His response: Complete and utter silence.
Ten years later, a lot more people have heard about him –maybe even my ex. But it still cracks me up to think about it.
