The Computer is Your Friend

Waller High School, the dog days of September.

Late twentieth century.

A load of freshmen enter the library for their library resources orientation.

I am no musicologist but I can place their musical tastes roughly in the vein of:
Puff Daddy / Snoop Doggy Dogg / Bone Thugs and Harmony with a sprinkling of Nirvana and Sevendust lovers.



The librarian, an obese diabetic with a peg leg and the bewildered face of an elderly kitten, says, "Do you know the James Taylor song 'You've Got a Friend'?"


The youngsters stare blankly.


"Well, the computer is your friend."
