The Question Club
When I was in fifth grade, I couldn't wait to get to sixth grade so I could finally be in the band and play the saxophone. But when I tried out for band, I attempted to play the saxophone and couldn't make a sound! :*( |
I wound up playing the clarinet instead, which I really didn't care for and never was very good at. After a couple years of being last chair on clarinet, I dropped out of band and haven't played my clarinet since.
But for some reason, I still have the damn thing. A teeny tiny part of me wishes I could play it, but realistically, I know I hate it and will never be good at it. Another teeny tiny part of me wonders if my son might wind up playing it some day, but as of now, he's almost 10 and has no interest in playing any musical instrument. (And how many boys play clarinet, anyway? I know when I was in band, ALL the clarinet players were girls.)
With all that in mind...
TQC, should I sell my clarinet?
Why does the idea of selling it make me so sad? How can I get over it?
