I am sure we must have been here before, but regardless.
My boss at work has no taste for the finer things we tend to take for granted. On Friday, our conversation somehow came aroud to me mentioning a scene from Some Like it Hot. He looked at me, had never heard of the film. He’s not young, about 10 – 15 years younger but like Barry Wom, I was shocked and stunned. Previously, we had been talking about books and he was talking about Angels and Demons which I foolishly admitted I had never heard of. It was only when he mentioned The Da Vinci Code that something clicked and I didn’t have the heart to tell him that this was rubbish and I was thinking about someting a little more elevated.
What do we all do when we find ourselves us in this position ? I am more accepting these days, but still never having heard of Some Like it Hot or seen that scene of Marilyn playing the uke. That’s just plain weird.
