    10...your manicurist has a restraining order against you.

    9...you haven't got tennis elbow but rather "damper pedal ankle."

    8...you have recurring nightmares of scales, chords, and arpeggios; OH MY!

    7...hearing "Fur Elise" just one more time could be grounds for that insanity defense thing.

    6...you get dirty looks when you refer to Fantasie Impromptu as "not THAT hard"

    5...your family stages an intervention because your leather bench smells like rotten Gorgonzola.

    4...the neighbors now open their windows to hear you practice! You're flattered but they've actually developed Stockholm Syndrome.

    3...when relatives' kids visit, they're more interested in watching you play than putting their damned greasy hand prints all over the bass strings; also the mousetraps seem to help.

    2...local songbirds go on strike.

    And the number one way you know you're a bona fide pianist:

    1...the idea of getting padded butt implants doesn't sound completely insane anymore. :lol:

    Nos. 9, 4, 5 and 7 are my favorites, too.

    I wrote the list after almost killing myself laughing at the Palin article. So this is all Alf's fault.

    I also think no 1 is pretty funny, if I do say so myself.

    BTW, when's the last time you've smelled your piano bench?

    Hm... I've heard about sniffing girls' bike saddles, but sniffing piano benches is a new one :lol:
    I can relate to no.1... I did consider this when first starting to play organ. Man these benches are hard... But I seem to be used to it by now.

    Even worse when you drop 40lbs and your ass is a little more bony than normal. You could always regain the weight for a little more padding 8)
