“In the Car” / Barenaked Ladies (1998)

When I was in high school, the Barenaked Ladies album Stunt was featured prominently in our cafeteria’s jukebox. The track “Alcohol” was blacked out as a Non-Option, but this song remained. It always made me wonder about the Student Council’s priorities.

Guilty conscience.

Sometimes I look at my folks’ computer and am overwhelmed with the urge to apologize to it: I’m sorry, computer. I know that you probably have 70,000 viruses on you and that’s why you run so slow, but I don’t really have the patience to defrag your hard drive and do a much-needed virus scan and I have even less patience to teach my Dad how to do these things.

I’m a bad daughter.
