It says something about me that I learned about British boy band One Direction on NPR. (Pro Tip: It says that I am a nerd, and also that I am not thirteen years old.)
On my way home from church last night, I got to hear the last five minutes of Fresh Air, which was a review of One Direction’s new album. Apparently there is a shortage of teenage boys with silly hair singing about staying up all night talking to girls. (There is Justin Bieber, but he is getting old. That’s right: I heard it on NPR.)

So put down that sermon, or that bulletin, or whatever you’re working on right now, and bounce along with One Direction and their amazingly silly hairdos.
Does this make you nostalgic for the boy bands of yore? No?
