    It's the sorbitol, which is a sugar alcohol. Your body can't digest it, but your gut bacteria can resulting in gas. Don't chew too many sticks in rapid progression or there will be winds.

    I used to be able to sight read. I wasn't great at it, but I could struggle through a score.

    A couple weeks ago I looked at a piece of music.
    Two flats, so the key signature was easy.
    But then cam the notes;

    Horn player? If I had to sight read two flats right now I’d just walk out of the room. Violin and orchestra was my life growing up. It became all consuming and I burned out on it by college knowing I didn’t want to be a career musician. I’ve picked it up here and there but not currently playing. Still have a deep love of classical music. And heavy metal. They actually have a lot in common. What were we talking about again?

    Same here, Music Ed major in college...had a professor that gave me the most pointed and valuable advice by saying "I see the writing on the wall...you must be blind not to". He was absolutely right, I was burned out and didn't have the passion it would take to make a career of it.

    I build Data Centers now...

    I was distracted yesterday again. I forgot that I am not 20 years old and jumped over a snow bank

    . I also forgot that my starting point - the sidewalk - was about a foot higher than my landing area (roadway).

    I landed on my feet but the right knee felt weird. Today, it hurts!

    Bass, the big one. I was in the orchestra in college, which was the last time I tried to read. Also the pretty much last time I played with a bow. I still play regularly, but it's traditional blues and "Americana." I was dead set on being a musician in my youth. However, after a year or two on the road I opted for a "real job."
