My husband and I were at the mall yesterday so I could get some of sample packs of flavored coffee from Barnie’s (Cool Café Blues and Santa’s White Christmas — yummynummy). When we finally made it to the register, my husband made a comment about Madonna’s “Lucky Star” playing on the Muzak.
“Well, it’s the actual song, so it’s not really Muzak,” I said.
“But at least it isn’t the Star Trek theme,” he said.
“True, but the fact that it’s [Madonna’s song] playing means that we’re old,” I said and laughed.
The girl was done ringing up our purchase and handed me the receipt. As I picked up the bag, I sighed and said, “I have this album on cassette somewhere at home.”
The girl’s eyes softened and she drew out a two-syllable “awww.”
We walked away, and as we rounded the corner, I said, “No, she doesn’t think we’re old at all.”
