After a career in Music and education, I decided to try a couple of new pursuits. One was piano tuning, which my wife understood. However, she misheard me and thought I said I also wanted to be a pirate. Which was odd, considering the fact that it takes us about 3 hours to drive to the beach.
She finally understood when I showed her my new pilot’s license. Luckily, she still had the receipt for the frilly shirt she had bought me (to be honest I hadn’t worn it anyway...).
