I got an iPod when I got my new car with plug-in to the console. Of course I went nuts collecting music from amazon and burning my CDs to iTunes. In the process I bought an Arlo Guthrie album since I like some of his songs and don’t mind learning some new ones. So, sometimes I just pick a random spot on the iPod and listen to the subsequent songs in alphabetically order, and I was doing so yesterday. On comes one of the Arlo songs, which I have never heard before in my life and knew nothing of
and it starts “It’s the tenth of January…” (Darkest Hour)
(I had the date in my head since my mom died 1/10/10 at 1:10 CDT – coincidence?! I think so since it was in Colorado 12:10am )
And a historic one – I was walking in Times Square and almost got hit by a car with license plate RIP GDG (my initials!!).
