le Freak

(Anna is on the right but interestingly I notice all four musicians are nail polish-less)

I need to take change out of my pockets when I play piano. Even paper money and any other papers are best removed from pockets. Can’t play with rings on my fingers either. It’s distracting. Don’t know how Liberace did it. I try to hide the wedding ring removal from the ladies because they especially notice and give me strange looks. But when I played with violaist Anna Redekop few years ago and as I apologized for my weirdness removing my change and my wedding ring she cut me off and said “I can’t play if I’m wearing nail polish”. That was so great. I have never since felt apologetic knowing now that there are musicians like her. I am totally not a freak.
