Let's start off with a small anecdote about the generational and cultural divide. You see, my mom is clocking in at north of 70 years old these days, and Josee - just above 30 - has lived in Canada for just over 10 years. So once in a while there may be a slight communication gap between the two.
That's what happened yesterday as we prepared to hit the beach. Mom says to Josee: "I think I will put on my thongs to go to the beach". (Of course the modern day thongs being the dental floss panties - or bikini bottoms - are a far cry from their progenitor which was the thong SANDAL). Mom meant the sandal, Josee thought Mom had a string bikini..UH....Josee nearly passed out.
