Now I Feel Like An American Idiot

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I was at my parents’ house over the weekend. We were sitting in the backyard when the neighbors’ 3-year-old son, Leo, wandered over… followed shortly by his mother yelling, “Leo? Where are you??”

It turns out my parents had given them a copy of my CD. Leo’s mom said, “Do you know who this is? It’s Evan Jacover. He sings your favorite song!” Leo stared at me blankly as his mother prodded him. “What’s your favorite song, Leo? Is it about a wagon? Me and My Wagon? What’s your favorite song?” She really wanted him to tell me that he liked my CD.

“Go ahead Leo? What’s your favorite song?”

Finally Leo gave an answer: “American Idiot?”
