My dear friend, Milton, once accused me of not liking music. What do you say to a misguided assumption like that?
Me: Yes, and I’m not a fan of the taste of water, and don’t forget that I’m addicted to soot and have a natural aversion to fresh air.
What prompted him to think this is that I have never owned an iPod, I seldom attend concerts and when I write, I do so in silence. I reminded him (probably after asking him to repeat what he said) that I have suffered significant hearing loss and I know that ear buds would just expedite my growing impairment. For the record, I do like music and water. As for my soot addiction, I come from a long line of city slickers so that’s genetic.
Something else I like is this fun post Milton has written about who is the greatest singer of all time.
