I was practically skipping this morning. Why, you ask? I went piano shopping!! With someone else’s money!!! And I will get to use BOTH of the pianos that were purchased!!!!!
I went to music street with a few folks this morning to lend my finely-tuned ear and fingers to selecting a piano for the international fellowship. It just so happened that I also had money to purchase a piano for CDIS! So there is now a beautiful, new (and significantly discounted, thanks to good-old guanxi*) piano in the choir room, just dying to be used in class tomorrow.
I can’t wait!!
*guanxi is a good relationship based on past interaction that can get you most anything, especially when combined with a shopkeeper’s desire to make a sale. 🙂
