Today’s dream come true is the wishiest wish of mckennl, who, were this the 1930s, I would describe as a plenty swell dame. In fact, I am going to do so, even though this is not the 1930s. Anyway, her Christmas wish was for a list of songs that would please her were she to “download” them, which is apparently something the kids do these days.
