Big Al’s Blog: Another impulsive purchase

For the second day in a row, I have been on Craigslist and I have bought something kind of unusual. Well, they do call me random man, right? So, I guess I better get random. I did. If you read yesterday’s blog, you know that i bought a Ms. Pac Man machine on Craigslist less than 24 hours ago. I was going for the unusual. There can’t be too many dudes with Ms. Pac Man machines in their house, right??? Well, I’m not done with Craig yet. pianoThat’s the thing about Craigslist… There’s a whole bunch of crap on there. But this time I bought something that I bet 1 out of every 10 people either has in their house now, or they had one in their house growing up. Personally, I won’t put it in my house but I will put it in the dinning area of my bar for customers to enjoy. This random item is about 5 feet tall. No, its not a blow up doll. And I bet it weighs over 500 lbs. In fact, I was almost killed by one of these when I was growing up. It’s a Piano! No, I don’t know how to play the piano. But I know how to have fun. Everyone has seen a movie or a tv show where people start drinking and someone in the group yells, “Hey Bob, why don’t you play us a little something on the piano!” Or maybe it’s even happened in real life while you were at someone’s house or having a drink in a hotel lobby. “Hey Bob, why don’t you play us a little something on the piano!” Man, Bob get’s around, huh?

How was I almost killed by a piano growing up? My dad and I were trying to load it into his truck and it tipped over. It crashed to the ground and I somehow did a back flip to avoid getting crushed. I had never done a back flip and I don’t think i have done one since… but I did one that day and it saved my life.

Anyway, hopefully, I’ll get the piano in the next day or so and get it tuned up by the end of the week. That way, Bob can come play a little something at my bar.

Speaking of the bar, Psycho Shanon will be making her triumphant return this Friday as she DJ’s Karaoke. Go Shanon, it’s your birthday, not really, do it anyway!
