High Strung

September 26, 2007 at 9:24 AM

I'm idly practicing my violin in the living room, checking the window for my student, who has yet to arrive. Checking the cleanliness of that shift. Checking the accuracy of the string crossing. Checking the window again. While pacing to and from the window, as an ever-enlarging question mark hovers over my head concerning the no-show student, a sudden random thought pops into my mind:

"Highung". That phrase, did its meaning originate specifically in reference to violinists? I wonder. The double meaning, I reluctantly agree with a chuckle, seems hand tailored.

I check the window.

Oh, well put. Then again, from you, I would expect no less.

You're not really high strung unless you jump through the window.

No, I believe the term for that is
"strung out".
