It Continues To Haunt Me
So, that was it. My days with hearing a bad trumpet were over...and then, I moved into this new apartment. As we were moving in we started talking to the neighbor below us and she said, "So, Maddie is our youngest. She is great - we just hope you won't be too annoyed by her." Annoyed by her? What does Maddie do - bang on the walls? Scream racist profanities for no apparent reason? Nope, Maddie plays the trumpet.
As I'm writing this I'm listening to a monkey being shoved into...no, wait, I'm listening to someone attempting to do scales on a TRUMPET! Play something already! Geez, even in my six hours of practicing over three years I could at least play a decent "Up On the Rooftop!"
