Prompt: Jazz


"Do you like jazz?" She twirls a finger in her hair.

"That’s a hard one to answer. When I hear it, I feel like I’m enjoying myself. And of course I’m reasonably familiar with the classics. But then, I have to confront the fact that I don’t generally seek it out. Does that just mean I like other music better? Or have I convinced myself that I like jazz, because I want to see myself as a cultured person who likes it?"

She raises an eyebrow. "You’re supposed to say you love it and change the subject."

"Oh, good call."
