So Hot We'll Melt Your Popsicle

Before we went out on Halloween, I went over to a friend's apartment for a little party. We were playing a card game with a rule that if you drew a certain card, you had to stand up in front of everyone and sing a song, and everyone would sing along with you.I drew that unfortunate card. So I took a deep breath, stood up, and sang:"California girls/ They're unforgettable/ Daisy dukes/ Bikinis on top"And waited for others to join in. But the whole group just stared at me, unblinking."You guys don't know that song?"

Everyone in the room shook their head, no.

"Really," I said. "'California Girls.' You don't know 'California Girls?' The song that plays on the radio every one and half minutes? Since spring 2010?"


Maybe I should've sung "Teenage Dream" instead.
