I’m Not Supposed to Like It, But I Do
Weeks ago I wrote a post called “I’m Supposed to Like It, But I Don’t.” Here is its opposite number: some of the uncool things I dig . . .
The Andy Griffith Show. Actually, I love that show — especially the early ones, with Don Knotts and the very small Ron Howard playing Opie.
McDonald’s hamburgers. On the one or two occasions each year when I go to McDonald’s, I always go for the (comparatively speaking) healthier fish fillets, but I still haven’t lost my childhood taste for Big Macs and Quarter Pounders. I could eat one right now . . .
Old Billy Joel songs. (Don’t wait for answers/Just take your chances/Don’t ask me why . . .)
James Baldwin’s novel Tell Me How Long the Train’s Been Gone. A while back the author of a New Yorker profile of Baldwin wrote something like, “It’s hard for even loyal Baldwin fans to defend Tell Me How Long the Train’s Been Gone.” But it’s the Baldwin novel closest to my heart.
Sarah Palin. Kidding. I’m kidding.
