Do I have teaching the next day? Yes. Am I crazy enough to do it anyway? Yes indeed.
Hopefully this person won't major in advertising: I saw a handwritten flier in the band hall at one of my schools which read as follows:
w/ case and crap
WITH REMOVABLE MOUTHPIECE
I'm so glad to know that the "case and crap" will be included in the deal. And unless the trumpet was this kind, it would definitely have a "removable mouthpiece." That would be, to ape an old George Carlin routine, like bragging that your luggage "includes handles."
Kicking PC to the curb again: Eric joins the fray concerning the PC-niks' effort (futile in my book, and Eric's as well) to turn the phrase "Merry Christmas" into a bad thing. (My previous thoughts are here.)
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Most of the cars parked on my street that don't go to work, don't go to work."--from yet another student. What he really meant was that the cars that were still parked by the time he left for school ended up staying there all day, and he wondered why the owners never used their garages.
