Funny how you remember things at random moments. I suddenly remembered being a badge-tester for the Girl Guides. I examined clarinet players so they could get a new embroidered badge to sew on the sleeve of their shirt. I know practically nothing about clarinet but so long as it didn't squeak, they could pass. I tried to play my daughter's clarinet once but the fizzy vibrating on my lips made me laugh and I couldn't do it. I will be trying to have trumpet lessons soon though, and I'm hoping that playing a brass instrument isn't beyond my capabilities.
