I have been casting about trying to think of something to write about here today while I have the chance so I’m not scrambling just before midnight when I get home to get something up. Then I randomly heard Vanity Fair’s “Hitchin’ a Ride” and it brought a smile to my face thinking about listening to it with my sister when we were kids. I have no idea if she even remembers this, but I do. My parents had some random oldies compilation cassette tapes that they probably got for cheap at somewhere like K-Mart. My sister and I used to listen to them. I specifically remember us listening to this one in our basement and making up some little pseudo-dance to it that involved using the folded up frame/legs part of the TV trays we had disconnected from the top as a car that of course one of us was hitching a ride in. Ah goofy kid memories.
