Default Re: Dumb things pipers do (or say)

The dumbest thing I've done so far is to get my finger stuck in the top of my practice chanter. I take it apart and dry it after I play, and I stick my finger in it to check that it's dry; one day I stuck my finger in too far and voila! All I could think was that I had to get my finger out before I had to go find Hubby in the garage and ask his help to remove the unstuck finger (he likes to use his hacksaw a little too much for my taste..). A couple of drops of olive oil and the finger came unstuck. Somehow I don't think this will be the last dumb thing I'll be doing in my piping career..
A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even without any hope of doing it well.
