I was having a nice little conversation via AIM with someone who reads this site. He was saying that the oboe is the most important instrument in the orchestra and I suggested that I didn’t think that way. He reminded me that I have actually said we are.

So now I’m realizing that not all my readers know about my sense of humor, and you can’t hear my delivery of a funny (or not so funny) line. So I guess I should at least include a wink for those of you who don’t know that I’m a tongue-in-cheek sort! Then again, if you don’t get it, you don’t get it. So sorry.

But, just so you all now will know, I have a somewhat twisted sense of humor. I am, after all, an oboist. There’s a lot of pressure in this career. (There’s a lot of pressure on my brain!) I suffer while sitting near the “lesser instruments.” I suffer with conductors. I suffer with oboe reeds. I “suffer in silence” (name the musical that has this line and you get two points).
