… Don’t toot.
Here’s a key solution to the perpetual problem of how to identify pianists without pinning them inside the piano.
I didn’t know you played the horn!
Or wore skinny jeans!
But none of these trios had figured out the Eternal Piano Problem: how to include the pianist’s instrument in a photo shoot without draping everyone awkwardly around the piano itself.
Fear not. There is a solution.
A tiny, toy solution.
Sometimes, we’re just left without words.
Two different people have sent this one in.
If she crouches over that disco ball long enough, will it hatch?
Two valid questions from the person who sent this in:
Why are there two oranges on top of the planer? Why is the harpsichordist playing on a planer?
And: why are they in a wood shop to begin with? There’s sawdust everywhere. It’s amazing it hasn’t started to cling to the stockings of the flutist in the foreground.
Lean back, relax, and….
…caress your instrument lovingly.
Really, people, watch where you put those things.
“What are they?”
“Well, they’re nice little stands for houseplants. But if we stand around them, maybe have the pianist drape his hands over one since he doesn’t have an instrument to hold, we’ll look cool.”
