     Kommentar till en text av Ardith Hinton
Ärende: What's in...  1A.
=========================
On or about 02-15-06 09:26, Ardith Hinton did engage James Bradley

 AH>            Yeah.  There's a drummer in our community band, for example,
 AH> who's a really nice guy... but a space cadet.  After he had

Now, there's an original... NOT!

 AH> interrupted a rehearsal for the umpteenth time to inform
 AH> everybody he didn't have some piece of music which was
 AH> right there in his folder, the conductor threatened to fine
 AH> him fifty cents whenever he did it again.  He's keeping
 AH> better track of his parts now....  :-))

I'm pretty sure I mentioned two incidents:

A) Conductor stops the full band at rehearsal.

"Drummer, where were you in bar #whatever?"
"I was right here."
"Then why didn't you honour us with a cymbal roll crescendoing to count four?"
"Because my score says nothing about it."
"Bar #whatever, with a dotted half note starting on one?"
"Nope, nothing here."
"Bring me your score."

B) Student teacher is conducting her first piece, a Renaissance number that
nobody but her seemed to care about, with PLENTY of opportunity to 'improvise'
with only the conductors score to indicate we were sluffing off. The real
teacher sits everyone down in class the next day, and instructs everyone to
pack up their instruments in their cases from whence they came. EVERYBODY is
getting a scolding, when he starts at me, about two thirds through the roster.

"Oh ya, and drummer... What's your excuse?"
"I don't have one."
"What was that?"

Truth is, I couldn't find my score, that eventually turned up tucked into my
Social Studies duo-tang, and I 'winged it.' Quite successfully I thought, since
I made it close to the end of the rip-a-new-one session. I figured he was quite
full of excuses for the day, even though mine was the first valid excuse
besides the "My reed dried out." Or, "I forgot to release my spit valve."


 AH>            I think so.  From what you say I gather you
 AH> actually read the music. I know many people who don't, and
 AH> some are clarinet players....  ;-)

Now, I was lazy at practising, and had my share of mental blocks, but I was one
of two to score (no pun intended) an "A" on a scales exercise. I was also
awarded a provincial award from the Royal Conservatory the same year. Maybe I
did play up the role, but I did have *some* skills to back it up.

 JB>  seems obviously dysfunctional. The baggage they carry

 AH>            Uh-huh.  That's why we devote so much bandwidth in this echo

So *that's* why I always seem to leave scratching my head. <G>

 AH> much better for my own health to recognize why they're
 AH> doing it than to attack them or to crawl under a rock. But
 AH> I may have to shovel some of my own muck first....  ;-)

Hey... My yard is as messy as most, but at least I put an effort forward. One
episode of Richard Branson's TV series really endeared him to me. He strapped
on a fake moustache, a cabies 'uniform' and delivers all his reality show
contestants as if he was just another hack.

Of course we have the smart-mouths mouthing off, and the elitist monster rear
its ugly head, and a few even offered him a tip that *wasn't* insulting. The
elitist rude boy didn't even have a chance to unpack his bag before he was sent
packin', and the #2 A-hole quickly knew his place. I'm sure Sir Richard had
seen his share of bourgeoisie, and knew the difference between a comfortable
person with privilege, and a poser.

Beside being poetic justice, it sure made for a TV moment. 

 JB>  span, and cortisoned hip joint have been trying to

 AH>            I think I asked earlier whether you've had your eyes checked
 AH> lately. In any case, the cortisoned hip joint probably has
 AH> a lot to do with the limited attention span.  Seems to me
 AH> there is only so much energy to go around.  That's been my
 AH> experience, both with myself & with Nora, on various
 AH> occasions....  :-)

I probably should check the eyes. They can show something on the retinas I
suspect? I have been rather dizzy lately, but just suspected the low BP, and
hyperventilating.

As far as the effects of pain, I can pretty well account for most signs of
stupidity. Fer, instance, just after I told you I need to pull out the fire
extinguisher, I was so run down that I put a charge of coffee in the filter,
and a bowl of water in the reservoir, and laid down. Half an hour later, I
noticed I had left the carafe on the counter, next to the SOAKED perk.

Just as I'm sluffing that off to regular idiocy, three or four more things
happen to remind me how I had pushed it just days earlier. It has been rather
amusing, but disheartening to be sure. Just as I finished stubbing my toe on
something I walk by every day, I cut myself some slack.

 AH>            Yes... I remember that you didn't like it when others kept
 AH> trying to force pain medication on you, and I don't like it when

You know... I didn't even equate the two! We were watching a televised comedy
show or some-such, when the insinuation toward mental disease was the comedic
element, and rightly so, seen as insulting. 

 AH> they do it to me either! It's as if they don't want to hear
 AH> about my problem(s) until I've gulped down a pill which I
 AH> know will do nothing for me but may... or may not... put
 AH> them into a receptive frame of mind.  It wouldn't surprise
 AH> me to hear that people who are mentally ill often have
 AH> others discounting their feelings in much the same way.

If only that $25 placebo pill would do the job, I'd go broke. <G>

I ran into a snarky clerk two days ago. I try not to burden someone when they
ask how I am. Trying to pass it off, in that "I don't like to complain." the
wench said "Good!" and walked away. 

Admittedly, my attempt to keep the air frivolous wasn't going too well, but I
wonder what she would have done if I let loose with my top ten? <EG> I know the
lady likely has a child/relative with a physical malady, and the invisible
handicap is one she will never sympathize with... At least an amputee can
compete for an Olympic medal!

 AH>            Regarding your mother's friend, I doubt any serious harm was
 AH> done... you obviously meant your comment as a joke.  But

Sorry, but I lost the train on this one. 

 AH> even when you think you know a person well you may strike a
 AH> raw nerve where you least expected to find one, so IMHO
 AH> you're right to be cautious.  Unfortunately people do use
 AH> such comments as weapons at times against those they don't
 AH> understand or don't agree with.  I've experienced that as
 AH> well, and I've seen it happening in certain echoes....  :-/


I'll bite...

Do you think a persons' pride often keeps them from acknowledging their own
foibles?

Sorry, but I don't recall what I may have said to my mother's friend, but it'd
be just like me to stuff my foot in it.
