Discussions with Dory

Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming...

So, we're sitting at the dinner table last night (first meal I've eaten with the family in weeks), and the Eldest Aardvark Child turns to me and says,

"Did you hear that Johnny Carson died?"

LittleA: "Yes, I did."

EAC: "That's sad, huh?



Who's Johnny Carson?"

Mrs. A (laughing): "She probably doesn't know who Ed McMahan is either!"

EAC: "Who?"

LittleA: "Ed McMahon. He was the announcer and sort of emcee for the Tonight Show."

EAC: "..."

LittleA: "He was the guy who always started the show by saying 'Heeeeeeeeere's Johnny'!"

EAC: "Johnny who?"

I tell you, I can't make this stuff up.
