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.
