train-side conversation

Random conversation with person going in the same direction as I was after a gathering:

Me: I think I'm going to stop at Trader Joe's. I've run out of these amazing ice cream bonbons they sell there.

Person (laughing): Bonbons? Seriously?

Me, not getting the joke: Yes. They are really good.

Person: I'm sorry, I just cannot think of bonbons without thinking of M@rried, with Children. The wife was always eating bonbons.

Me: Oh, I never saw that show.

Person: You are lucky to have been away for those years. That was pretty much the only thing that was on when I was in grade school, and it was terrible.

Me: Yeah, I missed the 80s. But I was SUPER, EXTRA lucky, because I got to be in AFRICA. It's such a great continent.

And no, I wasn't being sarcastic. I was super, extra lucky.

I keep reading abut this Trader Joe's place... it sounds fascinating... although maybe I am fixating on the bonbons part of it :-(
