Transcription from a phone call yesterday afternoon:
Kyle: What’s the best thing that could possibly happen to me today?
Rita: Your boss quit or got fired.
Kyle: Hmm … no. Second best.
What he was referencing was this:
New to Kyle, but this is a late ’50s kit, making it right at 50 years old. He had acquired a cymbal some time ago that was actually quite valuable but he just couldn’t seem to make it work for him. So he was taking it around to several area drummers and trying to sell it to them.
Yesterday, he found a guy who was willing to trade him the cymbal for this kit. And I’m pretty sure you can’t beat that deal with a stick. (Pun completely intended.)
