    Yesterday evening while speaking with my new financial advisor who was going over my paper work.

    I see here that you are a musician?
    Yes, I am.
    What do you play?
    Bass.
    McCartney?
    No. . .Mingus.
    Who?


    And this guy is around 70 years old!
    Roll up the pants, it's too late to save the shoes :D

    Oh, I see the humor...you expected your financial planner to know who Mingus was.

    Sometimes I can't help myself. Being an insufferable "artiste," I was going for the alliteration :smug:
