Earlier this week, I heard a news story on my early morning drive home that warmed my geeky little heart. Apparently, a band geek was attacked by a pair of thugs, intending to mug her, and she beat the shit out of them with her marching band baton. Awesome.
I wonder how many band geeks we have hanging out around here. Share your band geekery with me. What instrument did you play? Did you march? How do you feel this experience has impacted your life, if at all?
(In case you haven’t guessed, I was a total band geek. I played the clarinet, marched in the summers, and even served as my band’s drum major one year.)
