And Now He's Pouring Orange Juice

Me: Bruce Jenner is supposed to be at the conference breakfast today, courtesy of sponsor Tropicana.
Younger Friend: Who's Bruce Jenner?

Me: He was an Olympic Champion decathlete. A real hero in sports, Wheaties Box, that kind of thing.
Friend: Huh.

Me: You would know him as the stepdad to the Kardashians.
Friend: Oh, HIM!

Ah yes, times have changed.

P.S. I met the Baby Name Wizard today at that same breakfast! She's very cool and loves all the statistics combined with the creative side of names. (Thanks to TB for seeing that she name-checked me in her post today.)

The reference as to who is well know is completely changed every year and every generation.

I did not know that Bruce Jenner was on the Kardashians until you told me. I may feel just a little proud of that.

And anyone who loves statistics is my kind of person. Numbers are cool, yo!

I would have loved to meet the baby name wizard, though I probably would have fawned.

By the way, my kids like the weebles too (and the squishy oranges I grabbed off the friday am breakfast table).

Also, it was so nice to meet you!
