Shidai (My First Girlfriend)

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.

Thus, Shidai.

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.

Check out Tyberius's original story. Then listen to the podcast. And while you're at it, check out what else Barrel of Monkeys have to offer.

YAY! Glad you liked it. It's actually "My First Girlfriend," but now it has three names!

You should have seen Tyberius and his class grooving to the song. He was a rockstar for the day.

Oops. It is now corrected. While you're at it, why don't you tell me the correct use of who/whom?
