brought my banjo to work!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 @10:42:52 AM

There was a thread on the subject not long ago and just last night I thought: why not?!  I keep my Bart Reiters in the living room for easy reach, but the old Goodtime is moldering away in a closet.  So why not bring it to work?  It's summer at the university -- today was commencement and no, I did not robe up -- and the work days are longer.  I can close the door to my office for a half hour or so, or even drag it out to a bench in the sun if I want.  Today I tuned it up and played "Worried Man" and I think the professor down the hall picked up his pace a bit as he passed my door . . .
