Kids Say The Darndest Things

Scene: Busy SoCal freeway (I know that's redundant) with Little Dif in the back, fresh out of her Collectivist Education Camp for the day.

"Daddy," she inquires, "what are those old things people used to play music on?"

"What things?" I asked distractedly.

Her little hand makes a circular motion and she says, "You know! They're like great big CD's!"

I just started laughing. I would have buried my face in my hands if the result wouldn't have been disastrous given my surroundings. "What's so funny daddy? Why are you laughing?"

"Are you talking about a 'record player'?"

"Yes! Have you ever used one?"

... kids these days!
