I am still taking piano.
Hopefully, you are surprised. Hopefully, you are wondering why in the world I haven't been able to worm my way out of it. Hopefully, you are NOT assuming that I somehow managed to start liking it.
Well, there are more ways than one to skin that sucker. And, what I figured out was I could fake practicing. Yeah, that's what I did. I could play a bunch of chords, and my mom would come in and tell me how great I was doing.
I had discovered a new talent. And I embraced it like an Aggie embraces the word "Howdy" into their vocabulary.
This lovely solution cut my practice time to 15 minutes! Was I smart or what? YEEHAW!
It was all going so well. Until......
"Kara, we're putting a piano recital together. You're going to play in front of a bunch of people! On stage!"
I look at her excited face and think, "Oh, #@!?"
