My Cred Is Intact

A coworker walked by my office and overheard the mp3 I was listening to. “Oh my God!” she exclaimed. “Are you listing to The Backstreet Boys?!!”

“No, of course not!” I replied guiltily. “Like I’d listen to The Backstreet Boys! Yeah, right! Hah hah! Hah! No, this is a parody of The Backstreet Boys called ‘E-Bay’.” By Weird Al Yankovic.”

Whew — that was close! Thank goodness I was able to explain to her that I was listening to Weird Al — otherwise she might have thought I was a dork.
