Speaking Words of Wisdom

Picking up the girls from school:

Julianna (9): Can you put music on?

Me: Ok…

“Needle and the Damage Done.” Neil Young.

J: Ew!! This is old people’s music. Why do people listen to this?

Me: Because I am old. And I control the radio.

I flip.

“Where the streets have no name.”

J: No. Too old.

Me: U2. Really too old?

I flip.

“With the lights out, it’s less dangerous…”

J: No!!!! Too old.

Me: Ok. Nirvana has never been labelled as “too old.” Are you kidding me? Do you want Justin Bieber or Ke$ha?

J: Ew, no, Something better. The Beatles!

“When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me…”

Now we’re talking. Old people’s music. Still the best.
