Subject: RE: Musicians - trimming nails tips
Me, I've been playing the piano from before puberty,
and eventually I gave up on scissor-trimming.
I just used the nail clippers.

Part of this is a response to the response of
Airport Security since the 9/11 terrorist attack.
I can't carry manicure scissors on board a plane,
because they might be used to injure somebody else;
nail clippers are viewed as less dangerous.
No, I am not making this up.
TSA confiscated my last pair of manicure scissors at the security checkpoint in the airport.
