Generation gap

My daughter comes in wearing a pretty flower-print dress.

My mother: "Oh my gosh, you look so beautiful! Like Elizabeth Taylor. A young Elizabeth Taylor."

Me: "She has no idea who that is."

Mom: "I mean, you look like Brooke Shields."

Me: "She doesn't know who that is either."

Mom: "You look like Snow White."


  1. How old is your daughter?

  2. That reminds me of a time I watched a movie with my 12 year old niece. There was a parody of the Village People's "In the Navy." My niece had no idea who the Village People were.

  3. My neighbors are roughly 8 years younger than me and I'm amazed at how many of the references to pop culture from my childhood they can't relate to. Makes me feel really old!
