    Spent a lovely day skim-coating textured walls. Came home to a lovely wife, who had made me a lovely dinner. Did the dishes (not so lovely...) and sat down to browse the TDPRI.

    Picked up my lovely Ibanez 12-string acoustic; put on my new and wonderful (and lovely!) G7 compensated capo. strummed the first chord of "Daydream Believer" and hot-diggety-dawg that darned pick slipped right out of my fingers and into the sound-hole. Which is partially blocked with a lovely old sound-hole pickup. Of course I have other picks... when I picked one up, it too slipped right out of my fingers. Luckily it fell to the floor.

    My wife got tired of waiting, so we missed our little chance for a duet tonight. I'm all grumpy because I can't get the dang pick out of my Ibanez. And I'm thinking: "this is like the same **** you did when you were 14!"

    Older and wiser? Maybe... Older and less clumsy and doofus... definitely not!

    It is amazing where some picks end up, that's IF you find them.

    I'm sure somewhere in the universe is all of my lost socks along with all of my lost picks.

    I have every pick anyone has ever lost. I literally have probably 2-300 picks and I think I bought picks probably twice in my life. I even include some in little bags very often when I ship a guitar just to get rid of them.

    My dog stole your socks. She was a regular sock thief when she was a puppy. :D

    This is all just metaphor talk, isn’t it?

    I DO the dishes every night!

    I fold them up and drop them in the trash can.
