Today at the office I was chatting with two colleagues about our young children's pop culture interests. S said her three-year-old son was crazy about Cars (the movie). I mentioned that my daughter (also three) loved Go Diego Go and Caillou. M then tells a story about how his son recently demanded to be bought a pair of Commander Cody shoes.
"Who's Commander Cody?", I say innocently. M, who like me is an old-time Star Wars fan, explains that Commander Cody is a clone trooper of some sort in the Clone Wars television series and possibly also in one of the prequels.
That is the first time in my entire life that someone has made a Star Wars reference I did not get. I had no idea. I've since googled it and found the above-pictured 1960s country-rock act, who I am much more interested in.
