So, we talk about a fair amount of random things as we are driving around the lot, looking for cars that need to be picked up. Somehow or another, we got onto the subject of vaccinations. One of the the guys' wife is a nurse, and he's worked in hospitals. He mentioned the vaccine given to kids for measles, mumps and rubella. A couple of us mentioned having one or two of those during our long-ago childhoods.
One of our resident millennials then asked, "What's mumps?"
We shook our heads and tried to explain.
Like many things in life, mumps is one of those "You had to be there" things.
