I finally understand why English is considered one of the hardest languages to learn. So many different meanings, so few words. My friend was telling me about how she bought Fulterer keyboard slides and I kept imagining it as a piano keyboard. I finally asked her how one would attach slides to a piano. She actually meant that the slides were for computer keyboards. No wonder I was so confused! We had a good laugh after that.
Just when I was leaving an event the other day, I saw someone familiar. It was my old friend, Watson, whom I met in my first semester of college. I caught up to him and asked him how he was. He said he was fine and somehow we ended up talking about mesa boogie 6l6 tubes. I was reminded of his interest in music. He used to play the guitar but stopped because he was taking too many classes. He said that he was trying to get back into music by managing his time better.
My friend was driving me to an Asian restaurant for lunch that day when I asked her what type of music she listened to. She was enthusiastic and said that she would turn on the music player in her car to let me listen to her current favorite song. Once she turned the volume knob, extremely loud music started blasting out from the speakers. A few seconds into the song and there was an awesome guitar solo that sounded exactly like a les paul classic guitar. Needless to say, I have that song playing in my headphones whenever I put them on.
I’m not really big on burgers but I do like those paper bags my order comes in when I grab the occasional burger to go. Those bags are like the cutest things ever. Somehow they have a retro feel to them unlike the boring plastic bag.
Another thing that paper bags have over plastic bags is character. Seriously! Why did they ever replace paper grocery bags with plastic ones? They’re not only bad for the environment, they have no character whatsoever.
Sorry, plastic bags, you knew that was coming! I have nothing against you. You can be really useful, just that you’re nothing compared with a paper bag. Even your crunch is kinda stilted, unlike the crunch of real paper.
Now I don’t know about you but I hate that plastic bags have no backbone. The minute you let it go, it flops down. Unlike the paper bag who is still standing tall and proud!
In music class, we were asked to discuss about different instruments. One of the guys in my group said that he just purchased a dean acoustic guitar and said that it was a nice change from the electric guitars that he had been using for the past five years. He also said that the sound that the guitar produced was clearer than he thought.
The other day, I noticed that my friend was wearing a really nice necklace and asked her about it. She said that it was from the Joy Jewelers firefighter pendants collection. She said that it was given to her on her last birthday. I thought that the design was unique and interesting. It even went really well with the outfit she was wearing that day, too!
I wonder if I should hint to my mom that I want one of those for my next birthday. I have a favorite memory to go with that too. When I was in kindergarten, I not only got to on a field trip to visit a fire station, I also got to climb into the driver’s seat of a bright red fire truck and pretend I was a brave fire fighter!!
