Brahms' (very cold) Hungarian dances

We attended a piano concert with the kids yesterday evening. The whole performance was spectacular, but the real treat of the evening was a duo that played lively pieces "for four hands". They were amazing-- their hands were flying up and down the keys in a superhuman feat of digital gymnastics.

I leaned over to B and whispered: "Can you believe how fast their fingers are moving?!"

His answer?

"YEAH! But I'll bet they couldn't do that if it was freezing in here..."

If you got a big boost in your statistics tonight: Jen in Michigan and me were browsing your blog looking for your wedding story and the language confusion there.

I had told her that I thought that was your funniest post ever, so we had to look it up.

That is so true! Smart kid.

OK, now I've gotta know... wedding story? language confusion? Please?

That's like saying, "Yeah but I bet they couldn't do it if the piano was on fire," or, "I bet they couldn't do it if I stood on my seat and started singing off key at the top of my voice . . ."

*grin*

Hi! Thanks for checking in on me, Ellen! Anno, here's the link to the completely embarrassing story she mentioned.

Philip, that one cracked me up! I have always enjoyed following your twisted train of thought! :-)
