    My girlfriend asked me this morning where I was off to?
    I said- To deposit a check.
    From who?
    From my last gig.
    You get paid to do that?
    Her- Whodathunkit?

    Is that the collective noun for us: a perception of musicians?

    I think the problem here may be that your friend is an idiot.

    Edit: I’m assuming it’s a platonic girlfriend. Otherwise I’m sure she’s lovely and brilliant.

    Next time she pops an ignorant question like that take her
    on a gig , have her load the car, set up gear, sound check it, play, tear down,
    load up again take it home, unload again.

  10. To be fair, if you point to a bit of ground and tell me that's home tonight - you'll be surprised at how quickly I'll fall asleep. So I suppose in that regard we sleep around.

    Based on some bits and pieces of your career I have picked up on from some of your posts, I'm guessing she hasn't known you all thag long. :D

    She heard "pay to play" and got confused.
