Try piano instead? That's a serious answer. I can play the piano in my sleep, upside-down, or on combinations of drugs for which there are no names, but guitar and other stringed instruments elude me. Fingers just can't do it. But the piano is much more forgiving. Hit the key, you get the note. It seems like it would be less demanding for someone with limited function in their fingers/hands.
I was all set to come in here with a new topic, in a much less serious vein, but Jen's topic is serious and kind of a downer.
So I'll start it up anyway, because we need lighter fare to balance the serious, and I think we can handle two topics at once. We're not that senile yet, right? Wait... what was I talking about?
I was sitting there in a food court last night, eating some KFC, digging on Colonel Sanders' special blend of eleven herbs and spices, when it occurred to me that you never hear them mention the special blend of eleven herbs and spices anymore. Across the way is a McDonald's, and a thought comes unbidden into my mind:
"Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun"
And I found myself thinking about all kind of advertising slogans that I grew up with but never hear anymore.
"You're in good hands with Allstate"
"Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there"
"Give your cold to Contac"
"Tastes Great, Less Filling"
