Midnight Train To Nostalgia

I try to live in the present as much as possible these days, but today I find myself on a midday train to nostalgia. La Sandy, one of my closest friends, is celebrating her birthday. She wanted to take it back to the good ol' days, our rockero days, when we used to drive to Carlos O'Briens in (don't judge...) San Bernardino and wear Dickies jackets and listen to The Smiths and Moenia. Our tight-knit group is now dispersed, but we're gonna come together at some characteristically shady town, and allow ourseves a flashback to the late 90s/early 2000s, our high school/post-high school glory days.

Locale has hardly changed, I'm expected to go to Club Ritual @ Spike's in Bellflower. My initial thought: "Umm... No thanks". When expressed my concerns about driving in Bellflower to La Sandy, she suggested a take a train. In other words, I'd be leavin' on a midnight train to Bellflower. Pretend single-tear down the left cheek. No doubt it'll be fun, I always end up having the time of my life when I get together with my old friends.

Now I must figure out what to wear... I don't have Dickies anymore.
