Last night I spoke to Jedd, a fellow kung fu student, about guitar teachers. He passed me the name of an individual from Wesleyan for whom Jedd had great praise. It sounds like an amazing opportunity and I’m really hoping the teacher is willing to take on a new student.
I had a conversation with my mom about the potential.
Mom D: that sounds like a great opportunity!
Mike D: I agree! It’s a little bit pricey though.
Mom D: what is pricey?
Mike D: about $60-65 an hour
Mom D: actually, that’s not that terrible; when Alicia was taking lessons at NEC they were close to that I think.
Mike D: I guess that’s good to know
Mom D: and Theresa with her Gymnastics… yikes
Mike D: wait a minute, did I have any expensive hobbies?
Mom D: no you were really cheap, community tennis lessons and $5 saxophone lessons
Mike D: shouldn’t I have gotten a per diem or something?
Mom D: you weren’t smart enough to ask for one.
