  Weird show. I was in a really obnoxious mood all night and somehow reverted to my 16 year old self, which is a slightly smaller version of what I am now, only with long hair and braces and a fierce determination to piss off my mother. Incidentally, I did see my mother today and I assure you that I was very sweet to her even though she made me totally angry when she told me the following story: Nearly everyone can relate to a parent talking about how they bumped into one of your high school friends' mothers in the supermarket, how they got to talking, and how they exchanged stories about what their children are doing nowadays. Well, my mom recently bumped into the mother of a random girl I went to school with ("Helen," let's call her) who is now, according to her own mother, a "big-time" television producer in New York City. Helen's mom proudly rattled off her daughter's list of accolades; how she went to a great college, met a nice young man from a good family, got married, has a great job in the media field, worked herself all the way to the top, has a lovely apartment in Brooklyn, two beautiful children, and how she single-handedly found a cure for cancer, how she saves baby seals in her spare time, and also how she donates half her salary to a foundation to find homes for little puppies and kitties. Which is all 100% hooey because I clearly remember Helen to have been nothing less than a pure and natural bitch-on-wheels who wouldn't have stepped out of her way to the top without trampling on my mangled body in the gutter after it had been run over by a fleet of buses. But I understand and accept that parents like to gloat and one-up eachother during these chance encounters in the aisles of suburban supermarkets, so I can certainly forgive Helen's mom for perhaps stretching the boundaries of what you and I would safely call "The Truth." What I CAN'T forgive, however, is MY OWN MOTHER'S response when MY whereabouts where inquired about by Helen's mom. I mean, *I'M* actually proud of what I do for a living -- I certainly don't go gloating about it in the produce section of the local Stop n' Shop, but I would rather enjoy watching my mom deflate the ego of Helen's mother by saying something like "Michael is the Special Events Director for a non-profit arts organization in Jersey City and he's also a DJ on an independent, listener supported FM station in the largest and most important radio market in the world." Instead, this is what she said: "Michael is into music."
  Yes, my mom calls me "Michael."
