"Dude," I said. "What are you doing?"
He grinned. "You know how you always say, 'money is flying out the door'?"
"Well, I'm making it really fly out the door. Watch!"
He opened the front door and set a few of his planes into motion.
Yep. That was watching money fly out the door!
Now, for a little something extra: I shared this video clip from my recital with my Facebook friends, but I thought there might be some of you who aren't on Facebook, who might like to see it. This is from the Schubert "Arpeggione" Sonata in A minor. Allen Baston is the pianist.
Get a big net for that money in case he does it again!ReplyDelete
Great recital.. wow.. amazing talent
Yes. I absolutely need to find a big net!Delete
Thanks about the recital!
Wow, Sherry, that was beautiful! I am not on F-book and therefore I thank you very much for remembering to post your video here on your blog for people like me. I played drums in elementary and high school but I always wished I could play an instrument that makes people cry. (Well, my drum playing did make my parents cry after wasting all that money on lessons. :) No kidding, you are lovely and talented and I thoroughly enjoyed your performance. :)ReplyDelete
I suppose it's better that Bubba made airplanes out of dollar bills rather than using them to light his cigars, don't you think? :)
Enjoy your week, dear friend Sherry!
I'm so glad you enjoyed the clip! I had a lot of fun performing at my recital.Delete
Yes, I agree, it is much better that Bubba makes airplanes rather than cigars!
Enjoy your weekend!
Tell him your money doesn't need any help.ReplyDelete
That was very haunting - well done!
Haha! He needs to figure out how to make money multiply. That would be much better.Delete
Thanks for the nice comment!
Loved the recital and I love the antic's of your son.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed the clip. And yes, my son is always entertaining.Delete
The recital sounded incredible... great job xoxReplyDelete
Your son is funny, he really takes everything literally xox
I don't think my son has grasped the concept of figurative speech.
As a passer by, I would be catching those airplanes made of money:) Your audition piece is beautiful, Sherry. You played fantastically. You are amazingly talented. I also liked the dress. Very classy.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Murees. I like the dress, too. :)Delete
lol doesn't bills take care of that already?ReplyDelete
Talented indeed at your feed.
Yes, indeed. I don't need any more money flying out the door!Delete
Great story and I loved your recital piece on facebook and am happy to listen to it again here!ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it!Delete
Did he run after the paper airplanes later?ReplyDelete
I ran after them! ;0)Delete
'Letting money fly out of door is like surrendering yourself to remain poor.' Tell that to your son to prevent him playing with money like that...ReplyDelete
My son was joking. It was a few dollars - not enough to get upset about.Delete
When I first saw the title of the post, I thought, "Oh she must have had a typo! I wonder what she's going to saw about a flying monkey." Nothing, apparently, because I was very wrong. 😅ReplyDelete
Haha! No. It was money.Delete
Loving your recital. Now I just need to track you down on FB in the hope of finding similar.ReplyDelete
Hi Tracy. I'm glad you found me on FB, and that we connected!Delete
His money will fly away soon enoughReplyDelete
That's my boy!Delete
comgrats on the recital! Did Bubba survive it without falling asleep or doing some shenanigans?ReplyDelete
He wasn't there. None of my family was. They don't like classical music. :(Delete
I hope he went and picked them up after his literal display. ;)
He did. I made sure of it.Delete
Love the money airplane story. Sherry, you play so beautifully. Love that piece.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I love that piece, too.Delete
While cute, I won't lie...there would definitely be yelling involved if this happened in my house.ReplyDelete
I'm pretty laid back. I don't yell about much. But when I do, look out!Delete
I sure do hope you had him go pick those suckers up! Jeez hahaReplyDelete
I sure did!Delete
I hope Bubba retrieved all the money airplanes! Your recital was magnificent. I"m sure you got rave reviews. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
I had a lot of fun at my recital. I loved playing with the pianist, Allen Baston.Delete
Careful! Next he'll be lighting bills on fire to watch your money go up in smoke. ;-PReplyDelete
I'd better keep a close eye on him!Delete
You play so beautifully, Sherry. I got goosebumps! I think your Bubba needs to get a job to recognize the value of money. LOL :-)ReplyDelete
Yes, as soon as he's 16, he's getting a job!
I watched that video clip on facebook and loved it. I should have said something, but it was a crazy day. (Aren't they all?) Your son reminds me of my Random.ReplyDelete
Haha! Yes. Bubba can be random - just like Random. ;0)Delete
Money does seem to fly. What a treat to see the recital.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed the clip.Delete
Gorgeous music. I love it!ReplyDelete
Hehe about the airplanes. My daughter loves making airplanes. Hopefully she doesn't get any ideas. :D
You'll have to keep an eye on her!Delete
Loved the music. So beautiful.ReplyDelete
BTW, money should fly in the door not out!
I'm with you - I will take all the money I can get flying in!
You are very, very talented. I loved it.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.Delete
