It's Alright...

Monday, August 10, 2009| by Will Chen

Sunday was one of those challenging days. The battery in my car (Hyundai Elantra) died. I've changed batteries many times before so I grabbed my tools and popped the hood. As I was trying to remove the battery, I realized I was missing my 12 mm head for my ratchet. Doh! It was already six o'clock and many of the local auto parts stores were closed. Fortunately my local AutoZone was open late so I swung by to pick up the battery and figured I'd pick up the part I needed to remove the battery as well but the battery was out of stock!  I had to drive to another store a five miles away to get it.

On the way I was beginning to feel a bit frustrated when Big Head Todd and the Monster's It's Alright came on the radio. That song from their album Sister Sweetly simply grabbed a hold of me and the refrain couldn't have been timelier. I got the battery switched out but what should have been 15 to 20 minutes work ended up taking over and hour. However, the rest of the night It's Alright was reverberating in my head drowning out the frustration which would have normally consumed my thoughts...
