Thread Name: Lost Plectrum
Subject: RE: Lost Plectrum
I found it, Andrew. It was in the gravel of the parking lot of a Mexican restaurant on Interstate 70 east of Kansas City. I'm sorry to say that it was badly scratched and a little warped by the time I found it.

We don't call it a plectrum, we call it a pick. (Plural is picks or picki.)

I happened to be talking to a truckful of women friends at the time. I gave it to the driver and said, "If you get stopped in Raytown, this will see you through." She accepted it with a smile.

I don't know why I specifically mentioned Raytown. The same would apply in any town in Kansas or Missouri.

The bad news is that you are simply going to have to buy another pick.
