Grandpa, What Is Jazz?

Four year olds ask hard questions. Chloe hasn’t quite prepared me for the queries of her older sibling. “What is that?” “Shopping bag. Bag for shopping” “Yup” doesn’t quite get you ready for “What’s Jazz?”

I was faced with this very question while prepping plushies for a tea party. Caught on the side of the house farthest from anything I could use to access Wikipedia, I was forced to Wing-a-pedia™ it.

“Jazz is a type of music that emphasizes freedom and experimentation.” That was about as far as I got before being asked to stuff a large teddy bear into a dress.

Next time I’ll be prepared!
