My mother always seems to make some "discovery" while she's out and about and thinks that because she just saw it, that it just became popular.
Recent example: While out with a friend at a local dining establishment, they came across fruit smoothees. So on our next phonecall, she went on and on about how delicious they were and how "...they're so popular these days, everyone's doing it."
Uh, Mom, hate to break it to you but fruit smoothees have been around since the days when Jane Fonda was still making work out videos. On Beta.
It just amuses me that she's into something that "everyone's doing" when she was, for so many years, the advocate of "just because everyone's doing it, doesn't mean you have to do it too."
Oh how her tune changes when she finds something like a tasty fruit smoothee to jump on the band wagon about.
