Yesterday, Calico and I were discussing Miss Muffin’s growing guitar skills.

I have a hard time understanding folks who prefer talk over doing. I enjoy an occasional glass of wine, for example, but I don’t want to spend an hour discussing it bouquet as I drink it. Same for those cooking show, where judges spend 10 seconds tasting the food and ten minutes critiquing a single bite. Music critiques top my list of peeves. I don’t want to analyze a symphony piece, I want to close my eyes and enjoy it. I don’t care if a guitar piece was played with a alvarez rd8c or a Seagull acoustic. I just want to listen. How hard is that?
