*This was added in by me, not actually the name of the song.
Ah, Garfunkel and Oates, speakers of truth and wisdom. This song is about 1 woman, at age 29 and then 2 years later at age 31, and the dialog that ensues between them.
It’s amazing what a difference a couple of years can make.
I especially agree with Rikki’s assessment of the phrase “When god closes a door, he opens a window.” Not the same thing. Not the same thing at all.
Plus I’m sure I’d totally want to punch 29 year old me right in the face, though I was never all that cheery at any age.
