Ethan is presently enrolled in a soccer summer program. His reading therapy (as he's dyslexic) is still current and I still see to it that he memorize the multiplication table to the point of giving out the answer in one second flat. Getting there...Anyway I told him the other day that he has to start in his piano lessons. I'll be his teacher and I've already bought the necessary books for his lessons. He told me that he does not want to take piano lessons and prefers to take drum lessons instead. This irritated me for he never took interest on the mini drum set that I bought for him 5 years ago. Now that I gave away the drum set, he suddenly wants to "play the drums"!
My son heard our altercation and, naturally, he butted in. He said he was at a local music shop buying a reed for his sax when he saw some Fender Custom Shop Guitars on sale. He said some pieces were 20% and could I possibly consider buying him one. What?! I told him that I would gladly buy him a box of reeds and that's that. Well, maybe for Christmas.
