Smarter than I Look
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.
