Geritol Alert

So my friend came down from Da Region to visit today and we went down and took in the Indiana World War Memorial and University Park south of it.

Afterward we tooled back up to SoBro for an alfresco lunch on the patio at Fat Dan’s… we’re heading into the time of year where these outdoor dining opportunities are rare and treasured …and we both of us commented on the excellent Spotify channel playing on the sound system. It was a festival of The Cure, Depeche Mode, INXS, Talking Heads, B52’s, The Clash, Echo & the Bunnymen; classic fare from our late teens and early twenties. Oldies that, to us Gen X’ers at least, don’t feel old.

After my friend left, the channel drops “Head Like a Hole” by Nine Inch Nails.

I’m never ready for that.
