Gal Smiley, running up from the basement: Mom! I found something!
Me: That’s a cassette tape. It plays music, like a CD, only you need a different kind of playing machine.
Gal Smiley: Does the thing in the basement play them?
Me: Yes, I guess it still works. [Ed note: We’re talking about my old boom box from my university days.]
Gal Smiley: But when I press the buttons on it, it doesn’t do anything.
Me: That’s because it’s not plugged in.
Gal Smiley: So if I plug it in, we can play this tape?
Gal Smiley, calling to the other kids: We can play it! We can play it! Let’s go!
Captain Jelly Belly: Forget it, Gal Smiley…even if it does play, it’s going to be boring OLD PEOPLE MUSIC.
Excuse me as I go soak my false teeth. GEEZ.
