Ummmm, Michael- you are aware of what type of newspaper the esteemed Onion is?
Oh yes... which made it that much better.
I saw this floating around Facebook a couple of days ago--LOL!
I do hope her involvement with the ukelele brought her some comfort at the end.
Hi, I don't know what's the onion but this has to be a joke!!!
In real life, someone can have much ear and know scores very well, but put an instrument in their hands and maybe the physical/technical aspect of playing it wouldn't work! We can't know if someone who has never played could have been great. It's even hard to tell with those who play... No one knows in x context how someone would have evolved. (maybe a sligh idea but not ennough to predict virtuosity or not) So this is a joke ; )
But it was cute... Thanks!
Hilarious! So refreshing.

I am a gold-medal-quality Olympic figure skater, only I never put on a pair of skates! I thought I was the only one! The loneliness ends at last!
I am a champion in horse show jumping... only that my parents though I would become quadraplegic and never inscribed me to riding lessons...
But, I now enjoy little risk free forest rides once in a while! ; )
Love this article. It captures perfectly the phrase, "If only..."
