So I was buying fish. (Yes, DH, you're getting trout for dinner. Lucky you.)

Behind me in line was this little girl buying two packages of rolos. The grocer guy starts off talking to her saying, "Van Blyck? Van Boren? Van __(fill in the blank)___." He lists off 7 or 8 Van Something names.

Little girl: You didn't guess Van Halen.
Grocer guy: Well...They're kind of before your time.
Little girl: (silence).
Grocer guy: But I liked them better when it was David Lee Roth and not that other guy. You know what I'm talking about?
Little girl: No.
Grocer guy: Good. Let's keep it that way.

I think I missed something crucial in understanding this exchange.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
