Overheard on the tram

18-year-old girl #1: “What did you do on the weekend?”

18-year-old girl #2: “I went down to a pub where one of my friends was performing.”

#1 (excited): “Ooh, is your friend a DJ?”

#2: “No, man I wish I had a DJ friend. No, he was just singing.”

I know it’s a bit boring to talk about things that make you feel old, but jeez, did I feel old. Since when was it more impressive to be able to operate a turntable and dress over-fashionably than to actually be able to sing or play an instrument? I’m serious, can someone give me a date?
