Dear GYA, Can you settle a bet for me? Tell me if I'm wrong, but that song by Sheryl Crow, "Every Day Is a Winding Road," I'm pretty sure the lyrics go:  "Every day is a winding road, I get a little bit closer. Every day is infinity fine, I get a little bit closer to feeling fine." Am I right? Who wouldn't want to feel infinity fine? Speaking of that, is there anything happening this weekend that is infinity fine? - Bobby Indiot, Draper---

Bobby, I'm sorry to tell you this, but you're way off. The song actually goes: "Every day is a winding road, I get a little bit closer.
