Situation: I’m on a bus, listening to my ipod and going through a cycle of Di Sarli, Canaro, Calo, De Angelis.
I notice that this morning people seem to be moving more than usual, from seat to seat.
Then I realise it is mostly from the seat next to me.
Then I realise, I am enthusiastically tapping my foot to the beat while my hand is swaying from side to side trying to follow the melody.
Add a few head movements, a muttered curse when I get it wrong and suddenly I can see why no one wants to sit next to me!
At least it made for a peaceful second half of the journey!
