Nerdy Musician Humor

The Fiance is the player of a string instrument.

On Friday I accompanied him to the shop of one of his luthier friends, to do some bow shopping.

He's been on the market to buy a new bow for a while. He also has to get his old bows rehaired regularly. As he has explained to me, it's really important to keep the hairs on a bow smooth, supple and full. Repeated playing will often wear them off, and they have to be replaced regularly.

So I met the Fiance at his friend's studio. When I walked in, he was playing on his instrument, trying out different bows.

"I'll take these three home to try out," he said to the luthier, indicating three bows.

The luthier packed them into a special case for him. "I see you liked the Brazilian bow," he remarked. I just got these in; they're pretty nice."

"The Brazilian bow?" I asked the Fiance later, as we were walking down the street. "So does that mean it has less hair than the other bows?"

His response? "Baby, I love it when you talk dirty to me!"
