Back Stand

October 24, 2008 at 7:03 PM

Move it, please--no, not that way. To the right, and hold it still. Every time I adjust for you, you put it in my way again.

Good lord, it's the hugest thing; it covers every cue, every downbeat, until I'm so far behind I'm playing the previous movement. Strain, strain, I edge left until I'm playing the harpist's strings instead of mine.

I have no other option: move your head before I cut it off.

Oh that's just gerrrrate! Now I've got this tune running through my aching head. :)

How will you carry out your threat? Do you have sword hidden in your bow, or do you just sharpen the bow?

You're not playing Til Eulenspiegel are you?
