The Friday before the last week of school, I had a violin recital with the rest of my class and, taking an offer from my parents, gave it up forever. From now on it would be piano only.
In fact, I had piano lessons after my recital, and my dad even picked me up. He mentioned that while I’d been playing in the auditorium, *NSYNC had been playing the Rose Bowl. We left as I considered their main song, which I thought was called “555.”
Next: My mother unexpectedly breaks into song.
