What's on the box

Am I old, or are people watching way less television..?

So we were at lunch today, and C was telling us about what she's got planned for the next couple of months, and as I was starting to sit down and join the gang, I exclaimed as a person only can when excited over curried eggs on cruskits for lunch "You're like your towns' version of Julie the cruise director!!"

"Who?" She asked.

"The lady in charge of entertainment on the Love Boat."

"The What Boat?!?!" She again asked incredulously.

I was that shocked that she had no idea of that wonderful 80's show I had to stand back up and just stare at her. And then I broke out into The Love Boat Theme.

Which did not cause the blank look off her face.

I am horrified at this. (And unfortunately for everyone at the table who did know the show to get the Love Boat theme stuck in their head for the remainder of the day. And no amount of me saying sorry could rid that song from their heads.)
