Picking up the girls from school:
Julianna (9): Can you put music on?
“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.
“Where the streets have no name.”
J: No. Too old.
Me: U2. Really too old?
“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.
