another treasure in the junk email folder

every few days i go into my junk email folder and clean it out...

but lordy, lordy was i glad i didn't accidentally delete this one before i had a chance to read the subject:

From Subject Date
Ticketmaster Don't miss Neil Diamond Oct 28

little does ticketmaster know, but whenever grandma schwartz babysat me back in the day we used to cruise around in her tan 1973 chevy impala- complete with giant doors so huge that if i hung onto them when they swung open i would get lifted right off my seat and whipped out into the parking lot, dangling two feet over the pavement and praying it would swing shut before my skinny arms gave out.

and all this was happening to the soundtrack of neil diamond's album 'the jazz singer.'

sad but true, i still know the words to every song.

Good times never seemed so good
