Dave Matthews Fans - Look Away.

Dave Matthews' voice annoys me. I'm sorry. I don't hear what the rest of you seem to hear. And love.

I will say the tunes are agreeable, and even Mr. Zoom is a fan of him/them. But, when the DM starts to sing I involuntarily siezure with teeth gritting and eye squinting. Stone me if you must.

Tonight after dinner Mr. Zoom and I got into the car to drive home when I remembered that a co-worker of his had told him to keep a specific weekend open this month. That particular weekend happened to be one we had already committed to do something, so Mr. Zoom had to turn him down.

I hadn't remembered to ask at the time what they were trying to plan, so I brought it up in the car.

"What was it that The Pilot wanted you to do on that weekend?"

"Oh, go see Dave Matthews."

"Oh, I hate him [DM]. Too bad. You could have totally gone to that if we didn't already have that other thing we said we'd go to."

"Yes, I know this. So does The Pilot. That's why he was trying to arrange it."

Right then, Mr. Zoom killed a very noisey clown. Normally these incidents pass with negligible odor. This time, however, windows were suddenly rolled down and Mr. Zoom made a noise that indicated doom was now a passenger in our car.

It took about 2 seconds for me to realize just how smelly our passenger was. I sqeaked "DRIVE AWAY DRIVE AWAY - hurry! before the car engine lights it on fire!" I had the passenger door open, hoping to draw in some slightly less polluted air. He drove and circulation finally relieved us of our unwanted passenger.

I don't know if my eyes were watering from laughing or from the burn of one very dead clown.

I turned to Mr. Zoom and said "You know, it's funny how we were talking about Dave Matthews when that smell came out of your butt."

My wife, ladies and gentlemen.

The 7:30 show is much better than the 5:00. Please tip your waitress.

"You know, not everything is an anecdote. You have to discriminate!"
