This is going to sound bizarre and random, I know. The night before Tom Petty died my kids and I were watching a music documentary. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers came on. Up until this point it was popular modern day musicians. My daughter asks, who is this guy? My son claimed he hadn’t heard of him either. Since I know they’ve both watched Silence of the Lambs I went to YouTube and played the video for American Girl thinking they’d make the connection, which they didn’t.

The next day Tom Petty dies.
