Whistling or Lilting
"Why don’t people whistle any more" writes international champion whistler Steve Herbst in USA Today. "It is natural, free, and a great stress-reliever.—-The truth is, whistling seems an aberration today—it simply is not cool. What’s more, today’s youth and their parents do not even know how—-"
I do whistle frequently in public (usually The Music, but not always) although not in close proximity to others for any length of time, to avoid being annoying. I must admit that my lilting is usually confined to total privacy, except at a session.
What about you?
