How I Know I Married a Musician: Part 5

Today, Joel came out to the kitchen dressed to go to work after listening to recordings of this year's orchestra repertoire all morning. He's lost some weight recently and I thought that the pants he was wearing didn't fit him well anymore. So, I said to him, "I don't really like those cords." His (very indignant) response was:

The chords of William Tell Overture? Why not? What's wrong with them???!?

Parts 1-4


  1. Hahahahahahaha! So what size is he now?

  2. I got a good chuckle out of that one. I'm assuming he really was joking at all??? Because that would've been a good 'Jane' joke, if you know what I mean....

  3. I honestly did snicker out loud. I have a daughter who is a musician and I can hear her saying something VERY similar.

  4. Thanks for the laugh - I needed that! I can so picture those words coming out of Joel's mouth. :)

  5. But really---how could you not like William Tell?!
    Classic response:)

  6. Ha ha ha ha. That's so great. I just read parts one through four, too. Man, I wish you two (and your cute kids) were close, still! That's probably way selfish of me, but your family is definitely one of my favorites!

    P.S. I am not sure who I'm taking voice from, yet. They had to hire a new teacher due to the extensive demand at the University this year, and I haven't been introduced to her yet. Fingers crossed that she is even half as helpful as you were!

  7. That is great!

    Toward the end of the last school year, my kids were really dilly-dallying, and I was afraid they would be late to catch the bus. I said, "Boys! You need to hurry up! I don't want you to miss the bus!" And Ethan immediately started humming the William Tell Overture while busting it into gear!
