OK this is not going to be a hard post for me.
I am a trumpet player. It is common for brass players to drink.... And I do.
Last night I played a gig that I loved so went for a couple of beers afterwards. My evening was cut short by a fire alarm in the building the bar was in. We were evacuated.. but after two pints I was dying for a pee. I jumped in a taxi thinking 'get me home as quickly as you can!!!'.
That should really be the end of the story but when i got home after chatting to my (very obviously shattered) boyfriend for a while and making a sandwich I realised it was blogtalkradio time and Turnbaby would be on.
So I logged on and got myself a glass of some horrible wine I bought a few days ago 'just to see what it's like'. It was fizzy wine mixed with strawberry juice. It's a bit nasty but I hate waste.....
So by the end of the bottle I decided to see if I could call in to Turn's show from the UK. Apparently I can.... And as soon as I got through I was EMBARRASSED because I suddenly realised people could hear me! (doh!)
Now - I ask any brass players in the blogosphere - What is the solution to embarrassment?
So I did.
Kyra is on after Turnbaby on Sundays so over I went. And the fabulous Narf introduced me to the Kyra Sutra drinking game. Wey Hey!
My boyfriend retired to bed (giving up on trying to get conversation out of me as I was clearly in a chat-room trance). I continued the game for a full hour and a half.
I got through a bottle of wine.......... after leftover wine and 2 pints of beer. Imagine how I feel today?
