I was recently walking down the Las Vegas strip with my mom when I saw a bright sign advertising Meat Loaf’s Planet Hollywood performances.
“Meat Loaf,” I said, reading out loud.
“He’s pretty good,” I said, surprised at her disregard for a rock’n’roll icon.
After a brief pause, she realized her mistake.
“I meant Carrot Top,” she said, without missing a beat.
Leave it to mom to mistake a rock idol for a root vegetable.
