Music Nerds

You know how some people have secret relationships they keep from their friends? Well, one of my friends has a secret orchestra.

She plays in this group but she never talks about it and she never invites us to their concerts.

I'll say, "So when's you're next concert? Can I come see you?" and she'll say, "Nahh..the group sucks, and I don't like the conductor much, and the music is bad..maybe next time!"

She says it unconvincingly, though. I think she really likes it but she doesn't want to share it with me. She's been putting me off like this for a year.

It's like that secret relationship that's just about sex with the tattooed, Harley-riding construction worker from Jersey City that you don't want your banker friends to know about. So you meet furtively in alleys for quickies, and then in public date other guys you can take on double dates with your snooty Manhattan friends who are none the wiser.

It's like she just fulfills a need to be in an orchestra, but she doesn't want to share that need with the rest of us, who are members of her "mainstream" orchestra and don't know about her other, "secret" orchestra.

It's kind of scintillating, actually. We wonder whether the other orchestra knows tricks we don't know, or is really good in bed.

So we're going to do an intervention.

But I vote for just secretly following her to her next tryst - I mean, rehearsal. Then we can nab her in the act.

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
