The day I missed the zeitgeist

Posted on 3 October 2012

This is my anecdote of the moment, so here it is for posterity.

Two weeks ago, I was in a hotel in Terrace. CNN was on in the lobby. And there was a story about this new dance craze sweeping the world. The sound was off, so I couldn’t hear it, but you could see the video. It looked strange.

That night, I was at the wedding that prompted the trip. And partway through the night, a song came on that I had never heard before. And a bunch of people, most (but not all) younger than me, ran out and started dancing. A dance I recognized as what I had seen on CNN earlier that day.

I had discovered a pop culture phenomena via CNN. And that was the day I became old.
