Last night, sitting with the drum perched on my knee, scratching my ear, awaiting my dramatic, well rehearsed introduction to the tunes, I decided to hit a single "boom" just to show I was awake. Now this was to be done llike a Lambeg drummer, just swing your arm and hit 18 inches of drum once, with the end of the stick.
I missed the entire drum. All 18 inches. Now no-one noticed, but I did.
Is it time to go?
Farewell, fine friends.
