Thread Name: Your worst blunder?
Subject: RE: Your worst blunder?
It was evening. The cat-who-loved-piano was sitting on the Dear Husband's lap, listening as I played a dance by Schubert. This dance explored all the things you can do around an E (E major, E minor, A, B), and it ended on a deep, rich, powerful E in the bass.
But my arm swung down and hit an F instead. The cat went went from pleased to shocked in an instant, and she shot up on all four legs as if on springs. Then she stalked out of the room. With her sensitive hearing, it must have been like a bomb going off.
