Matt, Ben and I were discussing music over dinner last week. With the death of icons such as Christine McVie, some of the older rock songs have been getting more attention lately. Ben said he liked the oldie “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. I said, “Hey, watch what you’re calling an oldie. It’s younger than I am.” Ben replied, “You guys aren’t old …” to which Matt said, “Oh, that’s sweet” and Ben finished his sentence “ … yet.”
