In fourth grade, after we had our fill of Gary Paulson, we decided to pay attention in the vocabulary section of class and learned the meaning of the word "serendipity." Chocolate chip cookies and x-rays were both invented serendipitously. We had to list things we found serendipitously. Because we can travel time we went to early May 2008 and listed Suckers after a particularly hurried to see Ladyhawk friend made us get there really early to make sure we didn't miss a single bearded note, even though we just wanted to chill at that pho spot on 6th Street a little longer. But Suckers were opening with a trumpet and shorts and slip ons in the rain and male yodel and some heartfelt and forest born emotions. It's a good thing we were thing because we like that kind of thing.
