30-Day Song Challenge, Day 26 - A Song that You Can Play on an Instrument
When I was a kid, in a vain attempt at instilling culture in my naturally heathen self, my parents insisted I take piano lessons. I was not, as you might imagine, super into them, and I would do obnoxious things like hang off the piano bench while my poor teachers (yes, teacherS--I went through about three of them, I believe) tried to train me. My last, and most patient, piano teacher, was Mrs. Kennedy, and she had a very flatulent Labrador retriever who was the source of much amusement, as there is nothing a sixth-grader thinks is more hilarious than farts.
Mrs. Kennedy managed to teach me how to play the first movement of Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”, but this was not much of an achievement for me, because I never did learn to read sheet music, and I pretty much just played it by memory after learning it measure by measure. I have a piano in my home, and every now and then, I contemplate taking lessons again, preferably while remaining upright and minus the farty dog.
That wouldn't necessarily be a deal-breaker, though. Farts are still funny.
Here's the last one, in case you missed it!
