I’m Sorry, Grace

Our rental car has a CD player, but we brought no CDs with us. So we went to Best Buy to buy a CD, and settled on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The sweet girl at the register, Grace, looked at the CD and said, “I should listen to more classical music. It’s supposed to make you smart.”

Having a pathological accuracy compulsion, I could not stop myself from pointing out that the CD was not classical music.

I made Grace feel stupid. I’m sorry, Grace. I wasn’t trying to make you feel stupid.

Don’t feel bad – how many kids today actually know Mozart’s full name?
