Meet Lauren Talley, the assistant city and state editor of The Daily Tar Heel.
My very first car was a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville with a broken gas gauge.
Sixteen-year-old me learned two things really quickly during that formidable year: how to utilize a trip meter as a gas gauge, and how to distinguish between music to be played when my mom was in the car and music not to be played when my mom was in the car.
I mean don’t get me wrong, my mom is pretty hip. She knows how to accessorize. She's never posted a Facebook story. She burns even spaghetti noodles, which meant I got to eat out a lot as a kid. She’s fresh. She’s cool. She’s Carol Talley.
But she doesn’t know who Cardi B is, and she has no idea Migos is three different people. She most definitely would turn down the volume on Mo Bamba, and she still thinks Lady Gaga sang "Wrecking Ball."
