This one time at band camp…

So, this past Saturday the husband and I went out to the Boomershoot site to help Joe Huffman with a private party. Joe got a quote of the day from me as he was giving a tour of the site. Here is the back story of that quote:

In high school I was a member of the marching band and at band camp the band moms held a belching contest for anyone in the band who wanted to participate. To say the least, I won, beating out the guys in the process. During an awards ceremony of sorts at the end of camp, I was awarded the best tone quality award for the belching contest. My mom was not enthused when I got home, but my dad thought it was a hoot. It was proud moment.

Back to Saturday, I belched while out at the site and I was congratulated for it. The husband made sure to mention that it was an okay belch and that I can do much better, hence the quote.

    Howdy, Ma’am! Fellow band nerd here, at the Right of the Line, with the Colors.

    You were braver than I, or maybe more skilled, when our times came to belch for honor and credit. I did not enter the contest where I was. I honor you for your courage and glottal skills.

    Best, Jtg.

    P.s. I left a comment at Joe’s place about the belching contest I attended, but in which I did not participate.
