Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll: A Gen-X Dilemma

You’re out driving and listening to the ’90s station as usual, since you’re fairly skeptical about pretty much all music that came out after 2003 or so. Suddenly, “Macarena” comes on. What do you do?

  1. Scream, change the station as quickly as humanly possible without swerving into oncoming traffic, then wake up in a cold sweat when it invades your dreams later that night?
  2. Laugh your ass off, sing every word (including a reasonably accurate rendition of the Spanish-language sections, because back in the day you totally looked up what they were saying), and do the dance in your seat when you hit a red light?

She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.
