How it Came Together

I like to walk down alleyways. They are private and I can sing out loud without being embarrassed. Yesterday I was walking down the alley, singing the piano variations of Rhapsody in Blue, when I heard a rustling in a trash can. I stopped to figure out what was causing that noise. A raccoon stuck its head out.

The raccoon said, “Why did you stop singing? I’m playing along with you.”

I said, “Oh, sorry.”

I went back to singing. I noticed the racoon’s trash can playing was a perfect syncing of the bass notes of the piece I was performing. I really enjoyed the combination of our sounds. I kept singing till I finished the piece. When I was done, the raccoon stuck out its head.

I said, “Do you want to form a band?”

The raccoon said, “Yes!”
