it’s a quest

One of my students today was telling me how she’s going on holiday with her family over the long weekend. I made mention to the Vacation films by John Hughes with Chevy Chase. I received a blank stare.

She had no idea who Chevy Chase was. Or John Hughes.

My heart hurt a bit.

Man. I’m getting old.

When did that happen?

  1. Remember in the theatre during the previews for The Hunger Games and no one got the “you had me at hello” reference? OMG! Jerry Maguire is a much newer movie than Vacation!

    LOVE the Vacation movies, BTW…well, the first 3 anyway.

  2. Ah, yes, I had forgotten about that. I just assumed everybody had seen the Breakfast Club and the Vacation films. Took me by surprise.

    Me too. Classic! Also, best representation of my family. ;)

  3. Kids these days! Shameful the way they are being raised…
    Now I feel like watching Christmas Vacation.

  4. I know. I think I’m going to have watch it this weekend. :)
