where i practice for weeks to be drown out by crying

I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I bought one at a yardsale, oh, maybe 5 years ago. Got a great deal. Even had it tuned. A few times. Evidently if you don't play it can still lose its tune ...

Speaking of losing a tune, here is my first recital. My teacher rocks the planet and makes me want to play. Not that you can tell from the video ...

Oh, and when I look directly at the camera (it's hard to tell because Bear is shaking the thing so hard AND laughing AND trying to get Rio to yell 'Rock and roll!'), well, when I look directly at the camera it is to try to make my child laugh by sticking out my tongue.

In front of everyone.

I need a nap.

*I think it bears adding that while I have been eating compulsively for the past 2 weeks or so, I do not weigh 300 pounds like it seems in this video! I'm sitting on my leg for height, I have a diaphanous over piece, I ate all the black and white cookies because how often do black and whites make an appearance in Massachusetts suburban hell....??!!
