You wanna know what tradition is to people my age?
It’s Star Wars and Smurfs and Strawberry Shortcake. It’s soccer games on Sunday and pancakes at the IHOP. It’s a Bush or a Clinton in the White House. It’s wearing jeans to school and sneakers that light up.
CHURCH tradition? Oh, yah, shure, you betcha. We’ve got a church tradition. See, traditionally, we don’t go to church. My mother and her mother before her… not churchgoers. Let’s not even talk about my father and his father before him, okay?
All this talk about maintaining tradition; I’m doing a very good job of maintaining tradition when I don’t set my alarm on Sunday morning.
