Kids and Drums

There was a time in which little kids with drums would transform a good day into an awesome one. Nowadays however, it seems that these drummer children are falling short to their original premise. I’m a man of simple pleasures, but when those kids fail to deliver a decent drum show it really gets to me.

The other day I was strolling down the local park when a small boy approached me and said: “Would you fancy a melody?”. Me, naive as I am, accepted the boy’s offer. To my shocking (as in electroshock) surprise, the boy pulled out a flute and started playing some old fashioned Hamelin tune.

I waited for him to finish the piece and asked him: “Say kid, Where is your drum?”. He looked at me strangely and replied: “What drum sir?”. I was losing my patience by the time, but I’m a calm man so I told him gently:”Well kid, you know, the drum. Kids and drums… like fries and ketchup. The way is supposed to be”. He glanced at me and left…

I mean… Come on! I tried to stop him but there were a bunch of mice following him and I don’t like mice that much. What I’m trying to say here is that… well, you know, I just miss the good ol’ days and those kids with their drums.

    Come to my world, where my kid and all of his friends have drums. Wouldn’t trade it for much of anything, except maybe a kickass tenor sax player.
