Listening to a mix cd my friend gave me long ago a Metallica song came on, which made me think of my mother and her obsession with Jason Newstead. Long ago she dated a man named Val, who had a son named Mike. One of my high school best friends dated Mike and I was also friends with him. Mike knew Jason so my mom got interested in him and Metallica by proxy. Then I was thinking about how Mike reminded me of a heavy metal Leif Garrett and that's when I realized that he was the dude whose name I was trying to remember a few weeks ago.

I like it that hearing Metallica always makes me think of my mom.
