One Sunday afternoon, Yun and her mom were just hanging around the apartment. I said, "let's go do something." Translation: why don't you figure out something to do and I'll go with both of you. Yun suggested, Bargemusic. Of course, I never heard of it. Apparently there is some barge in the river near Dumbo where they play classical music. When we got there, Yun and I were the only ones under seventy. Not my kind of scene but what the hell. The first thing I notice about classical music is the second it starts playing, everyone falls asleep. If someone would have asked me, "do you want to go to an old age home and watch fifty old people sleep?" I'd have said no but here I was doing just that. I couldn't see a thing on stage. The rows actually went up in front of us instead of down, thus blocking everyone's view. So what I did was draw all the old people watching the concert with their eyes closed (sleeping). Even Yun and her mom slept through a good deal of it. Yun asked me what I liked the best. I told her the second half. She informed me I prefer Chopin to Mozart. At least I learned that much.
