Family conversation VII
My gran is so achingly cool, it´s hard to keep up with her. After a 10 minute discussion on her latest plans to purchase a webcam, we starting chatting about her favourite South African band.
Gran: Freshlyground have really made a name for themselves; I hear them all the time on the radio.
Gran: Ever since they had that hit with Scooby-Doo, they´ve been doing well.
T (stifles a giggle): Mmmm…
But perhaps the joke´s on me, and it´s the younger family member who is hard of hearing. Whatever – I hope I still listen to contemporary South Arican music when I´m eighty!
