I got in the car this morning to drive my 9 year old daughter, Ruby, to school.
I jacked my iPhone into the stereo and handed it to her as I pulled out of the driveway. Pick something, I said.
She spent several minutes scrolling around through my collection and chose something.
She chose this.
I listened for a moment to the quiet opening, puzzled.
What is this? I asked her.
The Bad Plus, she answered.
“You like this?”
Yeah, we played it last time you drove to school.
My little girl. This is added on to her taste that already ranges from High School Musical to the Beach Boys to Garbage. Eclectic, one might say.
