    Default UGH! So UNFAIR!

    So I called the local Music Store to ask if they gave guitar lessons to beginners. The guy said yes, for $12 per session (30 minutes). That's cheaper than anywhere else I have heard of so far. After asking him a few more questions about the lessons, he tells me they only schedule after 3:30pm since that's when she gets out of school.

    So I tell my wife this, and she says she suggests I find somewhere else to get the lessons!!! She is picturing a little 17 year old, blonde hottie who is just getting out of cheerleading practice to come up and give guitar lessons! But I gaurantee she's a little geeky band girl! UNFAIR! What should I tell my wife?

    Uber cannot understand your dilemma. Uber hired a college age assistant. Aside from having to sleep on the couch for six months, there was no issues that Uber could discern.

    Tell her that you will be supporting WooHoo entrepreneurism by providing a high school kid with a $24 / Hour job and in exchange you'll one day be a rockin' dude with hot licks on the guitar who can in turn earn money by playing in a band for weddings, bar mitzvahs, and wannabe debutant balls, said money which goes towards showering your wife with more nice things.

    It's the "Circle of Life, Capitalist Edition," the new home game from Mattel that features no moving parts made in China and a 100% lifetime WooHoo guarantee. . .

    If all else fails, ask her to be your chaperone at the lessons.

    woohoo -

    go meet the instructor face to face to further "discuss the lessons" and while in the meeting, try to take a few pix of her w/ you cell phone. (make sure she doesn't see you take the pix, they should be candids)

    Then depending on how she looks, keep the pix for yourself, or send them to your wife to stop her worries...

    All great ideas. Maybe I should research her name, look her up on the internet and find out a bunch of stuff about her, then sneak into the high school and peak into her classroom doors during the day to see what she looks like, then follow her to her car and up to the music store, then when she gets out of her car, walk up and introduce myself like I just pulled into the parking lot myself, THEN snap the pics for you guys.

    Yes! And you also might try saying you are a substitute teacher and going forward as Jack Black does in School of Rock. Hopefully Chelsea isn't reading all this.

    Hmm. I can't see why your wife would be worried. This sounds like a wonderful plan. Let me know if you need any assistance.

    Default Oh yes, you definitely tell her...

    Then you clean the crap off your passenger side seat cuz she's coming with you. Unless you tell her after-the-fact, at which point, I would prefer you take a tape-recorder and post the audio on the foo for all of us to enjoy.
