I received yet another email asking me to teach. Teaching what isn’t entirely clear, but I’m assuming it’s voice lessons. Heh. Sure. I can teach voice lessons. Right after I teach my class in brain surgery.

Here’s the message, typos and spacing errors and all:

I just love that this is a student with extreme integrity.

Part of me wants to write back and say I charge a million per lesson and please send cash, but the smarter part of me hit the delete key instead. Besides, I, too, have extreme integrity.

These are such stupid scams, and yet some folks have fallen for them. Sigh.

In Other News
I can’t help but laugh at all the talk around this area of the world about the San Francisco 49ers. It’s just hilarious. They lost to Arizona (27-34), but the talk is all about how wonderful it is that they weren’t as bad as anyone thought they’d be.

I hope no one ever says that about my oboe or English horn playing.
