Bro. Hunt said, "Let's all make the B-flat sound." A girl near the piano hit a B-flat and we all om-ed together. "The B-flat," he continued, "is the most commonly occurring sound in nature. That is why Buddhists make that noise when they meditate." I thought for a second, and being the somewhat corny wise-crack I can be sometimes, I said, "So the world really does want to B-flat."
C'mon, you know it funny, and I do too, but I did not expect to get the reaction out of the class that I did. Bro. Hunt gave a good chuckle and my friends who sit around me, but the rest of the class just erupted in laughter. In fact, it made such an impression that on Wednesday I was in Craigo's, not working, but waiting to talk to someone, and a customer on her way out stopped and said, "Aren't you in my grammar class?" I looked at her and said, "Sure," as I shrugged. "You made the joke about B-flat, right?" I smiled. "Oh yeah. I guess I am." She laughed again. "I told that joke to my mom," and she made a gesture to one of the women that was with her.
Wow. I'm even funnier than I realized!
