Reverse Hickey

January 14, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Everything was fine when I had the hickey on the bottom of my chin. When I started playing without a chin rest, it started to fade. But now, since I received my new violin, and I was afraid to take off the chin rest since it is not officially mine, and since I play with left hand support (violin resting on my left shoulder, my left holding the violin up), I am starting to get a reverse hickey. It's forming on the bottom part of my neck, a few inches up from my chest.

How am I suppose to explain two hickeys to all my non-violinistic friends? They will never believe me now.

Jasmine - just give a knowing smile when they ask. Let them imagine what interesting activities of yours (done during the 10 hours of fun you incorporated into your schedule) give rise to them. Keep having fun!
