This is an actual conversation I had with someone in my writing workshop. He’s a retired antique bookseller. I’d mentioned previously that I play guitar in a band.

– I don’t play an instrument myself… Although sometimes, when my wife isn’t home, I play these old 78s. There’s this instrumental interlude, and I like to play along with it on the kazoo. Only when my wife isn’t home though.

No response from me.

– What’s that instrument that Louis Armstrong played? Not the trombone… is it the trumpet?

– Yes, trumpet.

– Yeah, that’s what it is. The kazoo sounds really good with that. And sometimes, I take the lid from a sauce pan, and I hit it with a spoon like a cymbal.
