14. I can plink something out on a piano but
just the tune. I can't make both hands work in unison, despite many people telling me "um, you type 80+ wpm. You CAN play the piano."

"Um, no genius. I can't. If I could, would I be sitting here trying to learn?"

I swear some people deserve a nice hard thunk upside the head.

No guitar - again with the two hands working together thing. And, alas, that means no violin, which i would love above all else to play. Oh well. This is not my musically talented life. I'm regaled to appreciater status and that's OK.

I'm good. Way too busy. You? :hug:
