Back in mid-March, I joined a string ensemble group. There are seven of us: four violins, two violas, and one cello. We had our first performance together last Sunday. We were live background music for a reception at one of the churches downtown. We had to play for about an hour and, all in all, I thought we sounded pretty good. Except for my instructor, none of us are professional musicians so our performance was hardly perfect. But, it was good enough to add "a touch of class" to the reception - or so we were told.
Yesterday, we met at our normal time and were getting ready to start learning some new music. As we're all getting our sheet music in order, the lady who I play second violin with says, "I would rather run a marathon than do that reception again." After talking about it, she decided it hadn't been that bad but I think it had more to do with how long it would take to run 26.2 miles than the difficulty of performing.
Anyway, her comment got me thinking, and I thought it would be fun to do a get-to-know-you/fill-in-the-blank here on my blog. So, here's the prompt: "I would rather run a marathon than..."
I'll go first: I would rather run a marathon than sky-dive, bungee-jump, or do any other activity that involves launching oneself off a stable object from a ridiculous height.
Your turn :)
