"Ugh, these weights are massive," he thought to himself. Of course, he was doing better than anyone in the clinic, everyone being over the age of 50.
While taking a brake, Rod's best friend, Joel,a man of 80, came up to him to chat an escape working out himself. "Did I tell you about my son?" asked Joel," My wife is taking him to Maryland to look at colleges."
"How wonderful," said Rod, remembering how much of a trouble maker the boy was.
"Oh yes, the wife and I think so, too," Responded Joel.
"Just out of curiosity," said Rod," what will his major be?"
Joel gave some sort of half cough and responded that his son would become a music major in the fall. "Oh, that is very interesting," said Rod," I didn't know he was interested in music, or even played an instrument for that matter. What does he play?"

Joel paused for a second, looked Rod straight in the eyes, and said, "He has 3,000 songs on his iPod. He knows music."

Haha this was great!  It represents how people today think they're experts in things because they've experienced them, or read about them on the Internet.  Excellent job.  Keep writing!

Btw, will you check out and comment on my work?
