Sassers: When you listen to Carmen and you’re like, “Jeez I don’t know if I can do thiiiiis!”
Joey: Psh! You ALWAYS say that and you ALWAYS learn the fings.
Sassers: I knooow, but like, it’s one of the most difficult marches ever written!
BaldJake: You will do fine.
Joey: You’re smart and talented.
Sassers: I have only played for 2 yeaaaaars!
Joey: Stop it. The ability, it is in you.
Sassers: And it’s two hours long. I’m concerned about the state of my arm afterwards. Like will it fall off? Will it cramp? Will I get carpal tunnel?
Joey: Yes. All the people who have ever played Carmen are armless now. As all dancers who performed Swan Lake are footless. It’s like that one kid who was playing chess and he couldn’t even and his head opened up and his brain rolled out.
Sassers: I’m sure.
Joey: We will get you bionic arms if we have to. But I bet if you talk to the people who make prostheses they will rarely report those who lost arms in a cello-related incident.
Sassers: Just stop I’m laughing in a silent classroom.
Joey: Music and the Dark Underworld of Black Market Arms: A Netflix Original.
Sassers: Oh god now I’m crying of laughter. In my silent study hall.
Happy Friday Everyone!
