    Default What's taking you so long in there?



    Yeah…

    I didn’t realize the mandolin would be so loud outside, it might have been funnier if it was muffled some.

    Oh, and this video doesn’t accurately reflect reality, I always lock the door when I’m going to play in there….

    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    My father, growing up a military brat in the 60s, was about as straight-arrow a teenager as you could imagine.

    The story goes that he and his girlfriend are cooking dinner at her parents' house, and visiting with said parents in the living room while the oven is heating. My dad excuses himself to check on the kitchen, and then steps further aside to use the restroom. While he is thus occupied, his girlfriend follows into the now-empty kitchen, and is sitting quietly, waiting for my dad to return.

    Not knowing the true situation of the young lovers, the girl's father comes to suspect that the silence from the kitchen is due to some romantic distraction. So he half-jokingly yells from the front room, "I'd better hear some noise in there!"

    The would-be Romeo, currently "seeing a man about a horse," is utterly shocked by the unexpected command. He decides he must have heard something wrong. So he finishes his ablutions in embarrassed silence, and then exits to the kitchen where his girlfriend is laughing far too hard to cut any vegetables.

    And so, in my family, whenever game night was interrupted, or when someone needed to take a "natural break" on a hike or a road trip, their departure would be marked by the vigorously-given direction, "I'd better hear some noise in there!"

    Remembering a long-ago 60 Minutes interview with Whoopi Goldberg, where she told the interviewer she was learning to play the hammered dulcimer (really!). Ms. Goldberg said she'd set up the dulcimer in her bathroom, next to the toilet, so that when she visited the bathroom for other purposes, she could get in a few minutes' practice.

    Honest, that's what she said, or at least how I recollect it.
