Reggae Dickens

Karl Kofoed wrote me a note about music:

We were in the car driving home and listening to the radio.

On comes a top 40 Reggae song.

I say to Jan, "That's Bob Marley's son. Um. What's his name?"

Jan thinks for a minute and says. "Jacob?"

"Jacob? You think Charles Dickens wrote Reggae?"

Jan laughs. "Oh. Of course not."

I say in a Jamaican dialect, "Oh ya! Dees are de natty dreds I forged in life, mon!"

We laughed all the way home.

And oddly enough, I own a cd called "20 Evergreen Classics, Reggae Christmas Carols"
