I Learned It From My Momma

This weekend, we had an early birthday celebration for my dad. On the way home, I changed my the radio station in my mom's car to my favorite radio station. Then, Usher's Hot Toddy started playing, and here's the conversation that we had. 

Uncle Mark: I laugh whenever this song comes on. 
Me: Why?
Uncle Mark: Because Usher's singing about a hot toddy. 
Me: What's a hot toddy? 
Mom: (without hesitation) It's an alcoholic drink in old movies.
Me: Hmm?
Uncle Mark: It's a hot alcoholic drink. 
Me: I thought it was a new way to say tater tot. (laughs)

When did my mom and Uncle Mark know more about an Usher song than I do? Oy, I must be the one getting old. I'm so out of the loop.
