Madonna Lives

Last night, on the way to our friend's house for dinner, Madonna's old song Holiday, came on the radio. As I warbled the song from my own days as an angst-ridden teenager, Chloe looked over at me.

"Mom? Is that Madonna singing?"

"Yep! She was even cool when your old mom was about your age."

*pause*

"Is she dead?"

"Not yet, dear, but she is looking awfully corpse-like with every passing year. Clearly she doesn't comment on Mummy's blog."

Mamma said...

This child needs to learn how to suck up to mommy a little better.

Robin said...

Bwahahahahahaha!

My kid is in a performance of Grease next month and is stunned beyond belief that his mother actually knows the words.

Fairly Odd Mother said...

LOL, my daughter would have asked, 'So, is she, like, 200 years old?"

I'm still struggling with the fact that American Girl's newest 'historical' doll is from the 70's. Gee, thanks.

This reminds me of the other night Bob and I were at a local fast food place, Mega Tom's, just as we were sitting down, a boy, about 7, said to his Mom - Who's that - pointing at the TV in the corner. Mom said, That's John McCann. Kid said - Isn't he dead. Really kids say the darnedest things.

Hahaha. I think the main goal of kids is to make us feel 700 years old.

"no dear, but we aren't sure she isn't half full of embalming fluid"

Circus Kelli said...

HA! Well, that's better than

"Who sings this song?"

"Madonna..."

"Great. Let's keep it that way."

Missy said...

That is hysterical. :) Your daughter is a funny girl.

Madame Queen said...

That's funny because Bubba heard Madonna singing Celebrate and asked me if it was Hannah Montana!

Cathy said...

Totally thought what Liv said before I even clicked on comments.

I'm so afraid! You've got to love it when the next generation feels so proud about "discovering" the new act that we've been listening to for _____ years:)

MamaGeek said...

Oh my. Poor Madge.

Last week, my niece asked me who Cyndi Lauper was. I still feel old from that zinger.

Our XM station at work was playing 1960's oldies last night. We decided it should be called the soundtrack to "Jeanne Goes to Elementary School"

As my son would remind me, "You were alive BEFORE the Beatles came to this country!"

Ha ha ha! Why must these wee people keep reminding us that we are old?

Overheard conversation:
Teacher: The Police will be in Tokyo next week.
Student: Who are the Police?
Teacher:..................
Student #2: Sting's old band.

Funny, yet slightly "ouch"-like stuff!!!
