If I never hear the following comments again, it will be too soon:
“Eew, I heard an [insert instrument of any kind here] made out of [any non-late-19th century material]. Why, I just thought my delicate golden ears would melt right off my head! How could anyone stand to listen to it! I may faint.”
I especially love it when they are subsequently unable to tell the difference in blind tests. 🙂 That part is better than butterscotch cake and Beethoven’s 3rd symphony.
Before you start whining up a storm, please check to see that you have carried out this small preliminary step:
1. Make sure you can tell the difference in a double-blind test.
Until then, I don’t want to hear it.
