Just how old does she think I am?

I'm going to Vegas in a couple of hours to see an 80's band in concert. Total girls weekend. No kids. No stress.

Bria wanted to know why I was going and the following conversation ensued:

Bria: Why are you and Aunt Ashley going to Las Vegas and leaving me here?

Me: Because we're going to see a concert.

Bria: What, like an orchestra concert?

Me: No, a rock concert.

Bria: Who?

Me: It's a group that was popular when I was a teenager, you've probably never heard of them.

Bria: The Beatles???!!?

Me: No, they're called Duran Duran.

Bria: Do they have a guitar?

Me: Ummmm....I'm not sure (do they?).

Bria: When girls go see Hannah Montana, that means they're her fans, Mom.

Me: Yes, it does.

Bria: So, are you a fan of the Duran Durans?

Me: Well, um, I never thought of myself that way, but I guess so.

  5. I don't know...I went to an 'NSYNC conert once and I wouldn't label myself as a fan. But being a Duran Duran fan is less humiliating, so I guess it works:)

  18. Tell Simon Lebon and Roger Taylor I'm still in love with them after all these year. I was the biggest Durannie in my day...oh so big.

    And yes, they do have guitars, but mostly synthesisers!!

  20. I didn't know they were playing here (I'm a LV native & current resident). Where are they playing at??? I'm so out of the loop these days. Saw Duran Duran in concert back in 1993 or so @ the MGM. They were great. Enjoy!!!

  23. Oh my goodness, Lara, as I peaked in on your blog today, I was thrilled to read that you are going to a Duran, Duran concert. Surely you will be purchasing the concert tee-shirt afterward to show the world how cool, young, and hip you really are? :)

    I have missed you, my friend, and hope that you are enjoying your summer.
