Pitch-pipes - Ugh!

I was sitting on the pan making good use of the spare time by tuning my guitar.  In these days I used to use pitch-pipes which, in case you don't know, you put in your mouth and blow into them so you can tune the strings to the right pitch.  Somehow, whilst I was adjusting the machineheads I lost the grip my teeth had on the pipes, they grazed down the front of my guitar and ended up in the toilet bowl.  I was in two minds, but I couldn't just flush them away so I stuck my hand in and pulled them out.  After a good rinse and a soak in TCP they were fine and I still have them although they have been superceded by an electronic tuner.

BTW - Anyone who plays the guitar and says they dont play sitting on the toilet is lying...

That's hilarious! Bathrooms got the best acoustics in the house. My Fender sounds awesome in there
