A young boy was sitting on the floor in the living room. He had just acquired a new kazoo, which he produced from his pocket and began to play. His father, sitting in his chair with the newspaper, winced at the squawking “music” but patiently bore it.

After several minutes of this audio assault, he suggested that his mother might like to hear him play. To the father’s relief, the boy happily trotted off to the kitchen, where his mother was cleaning up after supper. There, he began to play with increased enthusiasm, marching around the room. Finally, his mother could take no more.

“Oh, honey, please! I’m getting a headache! Could you go play that outside?” Somewhat discouraged, the boy moped outside, where his grandfather was sitting on the porch.

“Hi, Grandpa,” he said, dejected. “Don’t worry, I won’t play my kazoo near you.”

“Well, why not?” asked the old man, having heard the events inside, “I love music.”

“You do?” asked the boy, dubiously.

“Why, sure, I do! In fact, you could say that music saved my life.”

“How did it do that, Grandpa?”

“Well, it was back during the flood of ’39. We should have gotten out sooner, but we were young and dumb, and we never believed the water would come up as high as our place. Before your grandma and I knew it, we were surrounded by water, and the house was flooding. The water kept rising and the furniture started floating—we were really in a jam.”

“Golly, Grandpa, what did you do?”

“Well, the dining room table came floating by, and your grandma climbed up on it and floated to safety . . .”

“Wait a minute!” the boy interrupted, “How did you get out? And how did music save your life?”

“Well, you see,” Grandpa replied, “I accompanied her on the piano.”
