  • Waking up to the news that Shabazz Palaces are opening for Lauryn Hill on her upcoming tour.
  • Remembering the fear I felt, circa 2009, about accidentally scrobbling pre-release Wilco music to my Last.fm account.
  • The postal worker with mismatched shoes.
  • “Saint” by Blood Orange.
  • Heading out at 2AM for Sammy’s and my last meal before he heads to college: Impossible Sliders at White Castle.
    • The super sweet drive-through cashier.
  • Arm-wrestling with Sammy, a rare alpha activity for us. Winning round one and feeling survivor’s guilt; losing rounds two and three and feeling happy for Sammy and scared for myself.
