Don't laugh, because I'm not joking. I couldn't even make this up.
After months and months of my mother telling me how good the movie Mamma Mia was, and how I really need to see it, and how she wants to get the soundtrack...
It was finally revealed that my blonde mother thinks that the songs in Mamma Mia are NEW and that they were written for the movie.
I haven't seen the movie, so I thought maybe, it is possible, there were some new songs in the movie.
So, I asked her for an example.
And she said, "Well, they had one song called Mamma Mia. And it goes, 'Mamma Mia, here I go again...'"
I told her that first there was a group called ABBA who had these songs, and then there was a musical based on the songs, and then there was a movie based on the musical. But, she told me, that's just absurd.
What's absurd is that my mother has never heard of ABBA.
How is it possible that I'm the one telling my mother about the 70s, when I really wasn't around to experience for myself?
