Was talking to difficult child 1 a couple of days ago about Christmas. I don't expect my kids to get me a Christmas present as they are both hard up but difficult child 1 usually gets me something and often I give him some hints as to what I want. Last year I asked for the Guns and Roses CD that was just out. One other year I asked for Eminem. I do like hard rock and heavy metal but I enjoy almost any kind of music. This year I told him I want the album by The Priests - I've seen their concert on PBS several times; I think that must be what angels sound like. In any case, I was trying to explain to him who they are. He looked at me really confused and asked, in earnest, "Is this a joke?" I guess my tastes are just to eclectic for him to comprehend.
