Play an instrument? Sure, I played the french horn when I was in school. Do I enjoy it? Definitely.
Is there an instrument that withstands a great deal of ridicule? Yes. The accordian. And in honor of the squeezebox, today is the time to stand and celebrate Accordian Day. I'm not sure of the origins of this holiday, but if you associate good polka music with the accordian, then you just might be in luck!
