For a blissful 6 months about 15 years ago, I spent my days surfing on a nameless beach in Baja Mexico, and several nights a week playing trumpet with local musicians for drinks and dinner. My wife went along, and at one point was asked, “Are you married to the trumpet?” She laughed and said, yes.
A bit late for Halloween, but here’s a weird video, The Haunted Trumpet that jogged that memory. It’s pretty weak, really, and not all that funny, except for the very last line. That last line is, of course, pure fantasy. Enjoy!
