On the job.


I played three solo bass pieces at the Newtown open mic concert last night. I was well received, but I personally wasn't happy with the Bach cello suite movement that I finished with. Unfortunately Shelley recorded it. Recordings can be cruel, but they tell the truth. We must learn from them. 

I think I have the day off today. I'm not working tomorrow either because I have to move some chairs for Shelley at the library. 20 chairs. That's a breeza for me - when I was at NLHS I used to frequently set up the chairs for assembly by myself. There were 200 permanently place chairs and I would set up the other 200. I could perform this feat in 15 minutes, so I don't think that 20 chairs will be a big problem.

You could spin that big job out for a few hours at least.
Remember to douse your face with water to make it look like you've been sweating after the exertion.
That way Shelley will say "My Hero" when she sees you.

A word of warning though. There is a wind warning for Wellington. Don't leave a door open or those chairs might blow over.

I think that Shelley, who speaks clearly and consisely, would say, "My hero."

Nay, but seriously folks, evidently someone who makes decisions thought that moving 20 chairs was too hard a task. I guess that, when it comes to moving plastic chairs I'm like Lian Nissen in that I have a very particular set of skills.
