Monday, Monday (Where You Will Go And What You Will Do In Portland)

Everybody leaves their heart in New Jersey. Go on, admit it: Yo La Tengo is the band that made your first girlfriend fall in love with you. You put it on the mix tape, back when there were mix tapes, because you knew the thrill of November feelings.  

Or maybe you were the girl that got the mix tape? During sophomore year, from that earnest kid? And you fell in love? It’s OK to say so, even if now you’re a junior account manager, a wizened Sex and the City alum, with a solid sense of yourself and your life and where you’re going with it.

Well, anyway, that old November feeling is coming on again, and it’s still October, and you’re old enough by now to pony the 23 bones it’s gonna to cost you tonight to remember.  

Aren’t you? Well, aren’t you, kid?

  1. Truly, for some odd reason, your writing convinces me that you were the only teenager to ever fall in love on this quixotic planet…..

    That was an exceptional YLT show btw.

  2. Actually Gabriel, my highly esteemed co-writer Matthew K. wrote that entry. From what I’m beginning to understand, he was the OTHER teenager who fell in love on this quixotic planet. Lucky for for us, we fell in love with different girls. Otherwise, imagine the mess.
