"What type of music do you listen to?" my new co-worker asked me. He leaned forward, his forearms resting on his knees. His counter part, my other co-worker, leaned forward as well.
I turned towards them and announced, "Celtic music, jazz, blues and as of lately, a lot of Mexican music."
Nothing. They said nothing. Both of them blank, just taking it in. Maybe it was because I pronounced Celtic with the hard "K", unlike the way most Americans recognize it pronounce as in the Boston "Celtics".
Maybe it was because Dave is 27 and Matt is 25.
I might as well have said that I listen to Mariachis Music, while dancing the merengue, throwing knives and tossing back tequila.
After a long pause Dave said "I listen to music I can understand".
It's like working with my daughter and her friends!
