Piano Lessons make the (Wo)man
I am going from memory, since I can't access the Haven right now, and I haven't heard from the server company to say if something crashed, perhaps its just slow. Usually I just cruise the Haven and pick out a caption then write about it.
This was made for Terri, and I found the picture while looking for fancy dress photos, which is one of her preferences. Here is where I admit that I took my inspiration from Pop Culture. Seeing this photo, I immediately thought about the Family Guy episode where Lois gives piano lessons, and Stewie has it rigged where if the child plays wrong, the piano will blow up. Abject fear is a good way of teaching, don't you think? LOL
Anyway, as someone who took years of piano lessons, teachers are always harping on keeping your wrists in position and the posture to play correctly. I just channeled all my hatred for them into this caption, figuring that since the teachers seemed to be stern taskmasters, why not HAVE an actual dominatrix? I actually at one point was being taught by a nun, who had a ruler that she would use to lift my wrists up if they were sagging, or run it along my back if I was slouching.
The story came real easy to me, with the whole one upping the situation until it was ludicrous. I can't imagine that this would ever happen in real life, unless it was a kinky fetish thing. The picture is also vague enough that it could be a boy in the outfit wearing a wig? Something that is grounded in reality but is beyond what we'd expect to see. I think we all want to see that in a TG caption, right?
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Its Friday afternoon and I've had a hard week. How about you ask me some questions, either in regards to captioning or whatever? I will check in fairly consistently and answer as honestly as I possibly can.
