So I was invited by a friend to join him in a group session his teacher has once a week. Since I am not currently taking a class he felt this would be a good thing for me. Anyway, his teachers asked for a pencil. And without thinking about it I pipped up and handed him one of the many I had. He was very confused because he had no idea who I was and he just realized I was in the room. So he looked at me dead in the eye and said. "I must inspect your 'kit' before we continue." I was very confused and my friend said to get my violin case. I did and he had me open it and then started going through the little compartments and expected both my bows and then my violin itself. I was really confused and then he smiled and handed my violin back. "You have the second best kit in this room." he explained that he doesn't care about how "fine" our instruments are just that we have everything we need to care for them.
