Convo by Ben~

Ben: Mom will you please let me have a Lincoln Park CD?

Me: No Ben. I know you like them but I just don't think they're good for you to listen to.

B: I've heard them before Mom.

M: Just because you heard them before doesn't mean you should continue to hear them when

we know there are bad words in their songs. Tommy says there are versions

that are edited without the bad words and he's working on finding those for you.

B: Dad listens to Lincoln Park on one of those card things.

M: What card things? I don't know what you're talking about.

B: Those card things that you put in and they play music.

M: (thinking)

B: Mom, did you hear me?

M: Yes. Are you talking about cassette tapes?

B: Yeah... that's what they're called. Anyways, he has one of Lincoln Park and he likes them.

M: I know Ben but he's a man and I can't choose for another adult. I can choose for you and do

for you what I'm supposed to do.

B: I know.

Moral of the story: My 9 year old son didn't know what a cassette tape was. How old does that make me feel? Sheesh.

Wow. Even I know what a cassette tape is. "Card thing," love it. I had to explain what a WalkMan was the other day. Spoiled kids these days...
