"Don't ask me, I don't know"
A woman takes a lover home during the day, while her husband is at work.
Unbeknownst to her, her 9 year old son was hiding in the closet.
Her husband comes home unexpectedly, so she puts the lover in the closet with the little boy.
The little boy says, "Dark in here."
The man says, "Yes it is."
Boy- "I have a baseball."
Man- "That's nice."
Boy- "Want to buy it?"
Man- "No, thanks."
Boy- "My dad's outside."
Man- "OK, how much?"
In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom's lover are in the closet together.
Boy- "Dark in here."
Man- "Yes, it is."
Boy- "I have a baseball glove."
The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, "How much?"
A few days later, the father says to the boy, "Grab your glove. Let's go
outside and toss the baseball back and forth."
The boy says, "I can't. I sold them."
The father asks, "How much did you sell them for?"
The son says "$1,000."
the father says, "That's terrible to overcharge your friends like that.
That is way more than those two things cost. I'm going to take you to church
and make you confess."
They go to church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession
booth and he closes the door.
The boy says, "Dark in here."
The priest says, "Don't start that again

Guitar Q & A
Loosing the Grip on My Pick
strumming I am having a problem holding on to the pick. It seems to always
slip and move in my hand. Do you know what the problem could be and how could
I fix it?
1. Sweat - If your hands sweat while playing it causes a slippery film over the pick that makes it difficult to get a firm grip. If this is the case you may want to keep a towel handy and after each song do a quick wipe. I have also heard of guitarists using powders and other drying agents to help get the grip back.
2. Oil Based Picks - There are two main materials that picks are manufactured with one is oil based which are the shiny or glossy picks. These are a bit hard to get a grip on especially if your hands sweat. The other type of pick material is water based and appears to have a dull finish. These are much easier to grip and absorb moisture.
There are also some pick grip enhancers you can purchase to help if you continue to have this problem.
Hope this helps!
