Last night, after an evening spent in the ‘shwa with both family (Thanksgiving dinner) and friends (coffee date afterwards with Hoj and the Nevilles Kate and Lukas), I was driving back to Toronto and listening to an old mix CD I’d made; I think I’d thrown it together this summer on the eve of mine and my parents’ annual late July/early August car trip down to the Tristate Area. Anyway, I’d forgotten what was on it…and at 11:30 last night, I found myself driving through the middle of Scarborough with “Nighttrain” by Public Enemy playing on my car stereo. And I mean, does this happen to anybody else? Have you ever gone on a late night ride through some of the most dangerous parts of Toronto blasting Chuck D from a 2003 Toyota Camray? Isn’t this an open invitation to get capped? I felt like David Herman in Office Space; I swear I was one step away from belting out “y’all look out for the nighttrain!” and then having to duck and cover. Why do I do these kinds of things?
Y’All Look Out for the Nighttrain
