Concert for old people
Tonight we are going to an accordion concert! Can you believe it? This woman is supposed to be about to do "lots of things" with an accordion. Umm...what can that mean? I don't want to think about it.
How did I get into this?! How did I get so old that on a Friday evening, I'm going to hear an accordion player?
This person is an International Accordion Grand Prix Champion. Who knew that there was such a thing as a Grand Prix Accordion Champ? Not me. The flyer says (Well, it doesn't SAY anything, you have to read it.) "come be astounded by" this player. I'm already astounded. I'm astounded that all accordions weren't destroyed by the early fifties or sixties at the latest. Poor, poor, pitiful me.
