Sudden Panic

Monday, January 08, 2007
I'm sitting at home, minding my own business, trying to craft the plot for my aforementioned Great Canadian Novel (as too busy is no longer a valid excuse), when it hit me.

Like a drag-queen slap to the face. I need to know.

Does the Den at the U of C still play "Yeah" by Usher? "Livin' on a Prayer" followed by "I Love Rock and Roll"? What about that "gimme that nut" song? I need to know! Is the Den of my fuzzy vodka candy apple saturated memories, the Den I loved so desperately and feverently 4 years ago but haven't been in to after 6 pm for about 3 years the same bar today?

I don't know why I need to know this, but I do. Somewhere in time out there, there's a Megan who's about to slap on more eye glitter than is appropriate to go have a crazy fun time. She doesn't know it yet, but in a few months, she won't party like that anymore, and one sad Monday night in January, she'll get struck with a bizarre longing to shake what her mama gave her. Where is that girl? If you see her, can you tell her to wear more comfortable shoes?

I'd be willing to bet that it still does.
