An Anecdote Illustrating The Spread Of Music Club Throughout The World Or At Least Tacoma

We met up with my folks after work yesterday.

Dad:  Hey, come over to the car, we have something for you.
Me:  OK
Dad:  You are in a music club, right?
Me:  Yeah.
Dad:  We've been listening to this lately and your mom wants you to bring it to your club.
*hands me CD of Bob Dylan Modern Times*
Me:  *does not mention that I have this*  Hey that's cool, thanks!!

I love my folks.
