Kindergarten Music today:

Me     "...and this is a conga drum.  There's lots of drums here that we're going to learn to play this year!"

Sara*    "My daddy has lots of drums in his garage.  He even has a big one with lights."

Me     "Wow, Sara.  How cool is that?  Is your Dad a musician?"

Sara*  "No, he's just a drummer."

With apologies to George and my other drummer friends out there....

*Sara is, of course, not this young music critic's real name.
