My classmate Rachel is part of Barrel of Monkeys, an arts education theater ensemble in Chicago. Among other things, they teach creative writing to under-served students, and adapt students’ stories for the stage.
And now, thanks to Rach [who (whom??) is also singing background], I can’t get one of the songs out of my head. The actual title of the song is My First Girlfriend, but like all good 90’s styled R&B grooves, it needs to have an alternate name.
It was written by Tyberius W., who (whom??…dammit, where’s a copy-editor when you need one) despite being in only 4th grade has already found himself on the loosing side of love.
