Perhaps it's similar to the idea of getting the
first scratch in your guitar. Once that happens,
you're almost relieved and then it seems like
all the sharp objects in the universe are drawn
toward your instrument.
That is the reason I will never buy a shiny new truck.
I'd rather have an old one that I can actually USE
as a truck. Not some shiny new object to be waxed
and admired in the driveway on hot Saturday afternoons.
A truck is not a truck unless it is abused.
I never buy music books or guitars that I am afraid
to abuse. They are secondary to my pursuit.
I buy shiny new cars but I make a point of driving them into telephone
poles immediately. After that I don't have to worry.
Ouch. That could be hazardous to your health, not
to mention those guitar playing fingers. Ya gotta
protect the brain and the fingers at least. =)
