coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad: whether from great personal success,
or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen. - john le carre

Friday Fun Times
Not the cut I wanted (why do I feel like I say this a lot?), but still a fun song. I remember hearing Prine talk on a live album about picking up a newspaper when he was on tour in Europe -- he was in Rome at the time, if I recall right -- and reading the Dear Abby column and writing this song.
When he told the story, it was funny. Clearly -- when I tell it, it is not.
