Today I was working happily in my office when the choir director came by to run some photocopies.

What are you listening to?

She said it in a voice that sort of suggested she really meant to say What heathen trash are you listening to, you ignorant slut? We’re not besties, Choir Director and I.

Cat Power.

Is that Christian music?

No, Jewish, I think.


I looked it up: Cat Power apparently isn’t Jewish. Sorry, Choir Director. I didn’t mean to tell you a fib.
