Tonight I was taking my soon to be 18-year-old home from Wednesday visitation  (she doesn’t have her own car yet).  We were in my wife’s car, and she typically leaves the radio on the 80’s-90’s station.  ‘Urgent’ was playing, and I pulled a Hippy Joe and asked her, “who’s the band?”  When I was a kid, my Dad was famous for playing the ‘who’s that?’ game when a song came on the radio.  Allyssa replied, “Oh, I know this! I have the CD. It has the number 4 on it. It has ‘Waiting for a Girl Like You’ on it, which is why I bought it.”  Pretty impressive, “yep, who is it?”  “The Eagles”, she guessed.  Really?!?  “Nah, guess again. What do we call people from other countries?”  Man, I would have given anything to see that face of hers as she processed the question, but I was driving.  “Hell, I don’t know, immigrants? illegals? trespassers? Mexicans?”  I shit you not folks, I was laughing so hard that I almost drove my wife’s car off in the ditch.  “Baby girl, you are most DEFINITELY a product of your generation.”  A touch miffed, and a little embarrassed, she replied, “Well hell, that is an ‘old’ word, how was I supposed to know?”

OMG, that shit was SO funny.
