Smarter than I Look

Wednesday, 30 June 2010

Today was my annual trek to our local guitar store. Prior to leaving for JewCamp, I stock up on strings, picks, and anything else I might need to make some great music. Three things give the impression that I don’t belong: my gender, no visible tatts, and a lack of piercings.

Register Guy: “May I help you find something, miss?”
FrumeSarah: “I need some strings.”
RG: “Well, we have many kinds.”
FS: “I’m looking for Elixir Extra Light
RG (to his colleague): “She knows them by name.”
FS: And some Dunlop Tortex. And a couple of pick holders. Just in case.”

Remember, fellas, looks can be deceiving.

      Oh, we’ve got that too.

      I’m in way better shape than I was a year ago. But still a few things to get before we go. Some essentials… Oy.

    BTW – I was on vacation last week with no access to the internet. When I came home and went grocery shopping, I read your blog on my Blackberry. Keep up the great posts. I wish I could be as disciplined as you. I love to write, but can’t seem to block out the time. 😦

        Thanks!

        It’s not so much discipline as it is sanity insurance.

        Your photos were great. Looked like a really great trip.

        🙂
