Would Have Ended In Heavy Metal

| Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

(While at a stop light, my mother, who’s driving, is looking through her purse.)

Mom: *commenting on the music* “What are we listening to?”

Me:OK Go.”

(My mom, without looking up, begins to take her foot off the break.)

Me: “Mom, stop!”

(She stops just in time; we almost rear-ended the car in front of us.)

Me: “What are you doing?!”

Mom: “You told me to go.”

Me: “Mom… that’s the name of the band.”

(We’re no longer allowed to listen to ‘OK Go’ in the car.)
