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.
