The generation gap by Simon Sharwood

I took my Mum to see my son at the school musical last night.

It’s a version of ‘Annie’.

At one point the music turns to a bit of a trad jazz number, which moved Mum to remark:

“Oooh! The Charleston! I bet these kids will never even know what The Charleston is.”

I thought for a minute and replied:

“Have you ever heard of Fifty Cent?”

Mum thought for a minute and said No.

Half a second later she exalted:

“And I don’t care. I don’t want to.”

Seems to me there’s an awful lot of parent/child generational media reaction/interaction on show right there!
