Pianist envy. Sometimes, every man wishes that his instrument had a seven octave range, a LOUD pedal, and the ability to (easily and reliably) play ten notes at once.
If this is ever gets you down, just remember that at least you play something that doesn’t require a team of professionals to move and tune it for you.
Somewhere, a piper and an accordionist are reading this and sharing a smug knowing look. I can live with that. The piper has my undying respect, and the accordionist has my sympathy.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can, and the patience to wait until the river floods so disposing of the body’s a bit easier.
