A Real Answer to #2

On the 20 ques­tions meme, I could­n’t think of any real answer to ’til allessin­dra’s answer jogged my memory.

I learned to play the ukulele in the sec­ond grade. The whole class did, and we even had a con­cert. I still have that lit­tle $7 in 1973 ukelele, too. I even have new strings, but nev­er learned to re-string it. I’m hop­ing some­one who knows such things will take pity on me and help.

I’ve also played the piano and flute (well enough that I do remem­ber how to do so), organ (close enough to piano to get it back with­out too much trouble—the foot ped­als might give me a few min­utes trou­ble, though), pic­co­lo, oboe, bas­soon, and a lit­tle percussion. 

Want to build your upper arm mus­cles? Just car­ry the big cym­bals for a sea­son of march­ing band. There were two of us, and the guy was sup­posed to car­ry those while I car­ried the small­er set—but he cried. Seri­ous­ly, cried in front of every­one. I could­n’t stand it, so I took the larg­er ones away from him.

Now I only use my voice and don’t use that often enough.
