Double TroubleOne of my sons recently got a cool gig, playing music for a production of "Guys and Dolls." Four performances, great pay. One of these shows was Monday night. About 3 pm, he had an "oh ****!" moment. He has a wind ensemble concert that night too! When you are a music performance major, your profs expect you to be there. Period. With two shows, just hours away, he had to think hard and fast.
Lightbulb Moment: "All my parts for wind ensemble are on the clarinet. My brother played clarinet in highschool! I'm gonna call him"
The fun twist here...they are identical twins.
His brother said he would help him out...for $50. hahahaha! He got the tux, the clarinet, the cash and went to the show.
No one suspected a thing. The conductor even congratulated him on a wonderful performance.
My son did confess to his prof the next day. He said he should very angry, but the plan was just too brilliant.
That's my boy!
