Let me explain.
I replied and said they were great and that I got to see Usain Bolt again. (Third summer in a row...I knoooow!)
In catching up on news, Megann asked how the Commonwealth Games were. Being American, she knows them as the non-American Olympics.
Megann: [blank face, nearly like she was still waiting for an answer]
Tina: We saw Usain Bolt!
Megann: [straight face] Who?
Tina: Usain Bolt! Bolt! Can you hear me?
Megann: It's working. I just don't know who that is.
Tina: WHAT?! YOU DON'T KNOW WHO USAIN BOLT IS?! The sprinter?! He's won the Olympics...twice!
Megann: I haven't seen the Olympics in ages. [She works at a summer camp in northern Michigan.]
Tina: But he's the most famous athlete at them! You must have heard of him!
Megann: We just see how the American athletes do.
Tina: But he's in the 100m. Americans are in that!
Megann: Nope. Never heard of him. It's a good name for a sprinter, Bolt.
We laughed all the way through this and then about this for a while. I urged Megann to get our quote book, which includes all our greatest quotes (classics like the condo rep at Breckenridge asking when we stayed in Steamboat did we have an apartment or a suite) to write this one down.
As Megann wrote the quote down, she further proved she'd never come across Usain Bolt before, as she asked how to spell his name.
I spelt it for her and as we continued to laugh about it, I compared it to never having heard of Roger Federer.
