Ever since I was a little kid, I have found a unique sort of calm inside drive-through car washes.  Thus it was that, while I was enveloped in that sensory vacuum, hearing only the whooshing of rainbow-colored soaps and the trundling noise of the hose assemblies, I suddenly had an epiphany.  A Question Of The Day appeared to me like a vision, like unto a great twine ball on the horizon, hovering before my unbelieving eyes.  It was a question of such simple perfection that I teared up a little to contemplate it (although that may just have been my car burning oil in the enclosed space of the wash bay), leading to today’s invasive query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
