How I Know I Married a Musician: Part 9


The other day Bria had to do her practicing after school because she had slept in (and really, it's so freaking cold nowadays that who can blame her for choosing to stay in a warm bed?).  I think one of the primary things that motivates her to practice in the morning when nobody else is awake is that she doesn't get any parental feedback--especially from The Maestro.

Because he simply can't help himself.

During her practice session, Joel came in and turned on the metronome because she was rushing the tempo in parts. This annoyed Bria greatly, and she asserted herself where the violin is concerned.

Bria:  Dad, I'm not going to be a violinist when I grow up.  Just so you know.

The Maestro:  You can be anything you want when you grow up, as long as you use a metronome.
