Day 26: Morrissey, Tomorrow
I’m headed out to pick up my dear friend, Lora, from the airport today. Lora and I had a lot of adventures and every adventure had a soundtrack.
I remember once, driving on the long stretch of road between Las Vegas and our little hometown, Panaca. I was with my family heading North, just returning from a Disneyland trip. Lora was with her brother heading South, as we passed, we recognized each other right in front of a roadside rest, so both of us pulled off the road. They were driving their family’s silver station wagon, the one Lora and I lovingly named, “The Silver Bullet.” I ended up getting in their car with them and heading back to Las Vegas.
Morrissey’s Your Arsenal album had just come out and I hadn’t heard it all yet. They had it playing. Every time I hear, “Tomorrow” I think about that adventure.
