A Classic Custodian

After inflating the playground balls, our school custodian, a classical music fanatic, had an odd habit of writing the names of famous composers on them. No one seemed particularly bothered by this behavior except for one parent volunteer.

"Can you believe this?" she said, thrusting a basketball under my nose. "Some kid wrote his name on all the balls!"

"Who was it?" I asked.

"Aaron Copland."
