The Slice

How old are your oldies?

I was in an organic juice bar downtown, waiting for my order.

Sue me. They make something I like.

The only other people in the place, both staff and customers, were women who looked to be in their early 20s. I noted this because of the recorded song we all were hearing -- "The Ghost in You" by the Psychedelic Furs.

I bought that album back when it came out in 1984. Particularly liked that song. And I felt like saying something about that, but decided against it.

But I thought it: "None of you was even born when this song came out."

It's OK for them to listen, though. I guess. I did the same thing when I was their age.
