(scene opens in mini-van)
Alpha: What day is it?
Me: September 21st.
Alpha: Happy Wind, Earth, Fire day.
Me: Wut? I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Alpha: The song! Here, I’ll play it. (picks up phone, connects it to van’s stereo)
(Carrot does a quick glance at the screen and sees Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September”)
Me: OH! I remember this song. Yeah, okay. I get it now.
Alpha: (surprised) You know this song?
Me: Yeah. It was popular recently. It was on the Troll’s soundtrack.
Alpha: But that was like nine years ago.
Me: Honey, hate to break it to you, but its way older than that. I remember being a little kid in the car with my dad and singing it. Use the technology and see what year it came out.
(Alpha fiddles with his phone)
Alpha: Woah. It came out in….1978?
Me: Yes. For reference, your Uncle J was born that year. I’m six years older than this song.
Alpha: Wow. That’s really old music.
Me: (says nothing)
