IN THE KEY OF 'E'


M
y children are all musically inclined.  We have 4 guitars in the house.  Rocky has a little acoustic guitar that she got for Christmas two years ago.  This year Art inherited an electric guitar tuner for his electric guitar and his little sister has been trying to learn how to use it.  Yesterday she brought the tuner to me and asked what it meant if the little arrow pointed to the center of the scale.  Well, the tuner was set to E so when the tuner's hand swung to the middle it indicated that the key of E had been reached.  'Cool',  she said with a grin... 'Hold this right like this... I want to show you something!'  She gave me the tuner, then turned around... and farted!  Stunned, I stared at her then looked down... the arrow swung to the center... and Rocky grinned happily.  "I can fart in the key of E!" she giggled!  She proved the validity of that little poem... Beans, beans, the musical fruit... the more you eat, the more you toot!  I think I now know how my mother felt raising me.

Gosh I hope she doesn't play that instrument that often, LoL! I remember having one of those tuner for my violin and I tried so hard to make the thing point to whatever key it was set on at the time...... but I didn't use farts. ;D

Blessings. :)
