Pickin’ and Grinin’

Posted By on February 21, 2009

So, Sarah recieve a really nice guitar for Christmas this year and while I’m sort of a mediocre musician I have been trying to teach her how to play.  She doesn’t like to practice very much at this stage because it hurts her fingers; but I think as she gets a little better more inspiration might follow. 

So, I asked her if she had been practicing and she said “no”.  I said, “Well… if you’re going to get good enough to play praise songs at camp with me this summer you’d better get practicing.   We’ll be an act… we’ll start a band”.  She just glared at me…  I said, “So what do you think we could call our band?”  She said with perfect deadpan, “The Dork and the Amazing Sarah”. 

See what I get?  No respect.
