It’s 1995. My mom is gone for a few days for a work conference, which means my dad is in charge of keeping the house and his two young daughters in tact.
It’s dinner time, and we already had Rice-a-Roni the night before. Which means Hamburger Helper is on the menu.
“All Night Long” by Mary Jane Girls is playing on the stereo system in the living room at full blast. My sister and I watch my dad dance and sing along as he stirs the pasta/meat mixture.
My mom comes home the next day, and we eat real food again, but I keep the good memory and the love for this track for the rest of my life.
