Daily Prompt: Papa Loves Mambo

“What sort of music was played in your house when you were growing up? What effect, (if any) did it have on your musical tastes?” -The Daily Post

No music was played in my house when I was growing up except the occasional holiday mix for special occasions. Maybe that has something to do with my lack of interest in music. Then again, my sister was in the situation but she loves music. My parents both like it too, they just don’t go out of their way to play it very often.

I find music distracting. It’s not that I don’t like it – it’s just that I’d rather not hear it. If I’m doing anything other than sitting, the sounds get in the way of my thinking. My friends probably think I’m crazy but I really do love silence. It feels like the one type of art that I can’t seem to connect with for some reason.
