Sometimes Work Is Fake-Playing a Cardboard Ukulele

Yes, I strummed a cardboard ukulele. It is all because I applied for a mini grant that could win the library a ukulele for children's programming. Not only did I rock out with a cardboard uke, I did it on camera and then put the video on the internet, summing up in one 30 second video both 1. why I am fun to hang out with (I think) and 2. why I am still single.

Sometimes, to get the kids at your library cool stuff, you have to be an idiot.

I hope you enjoy my fake-ukulele-playing face. It says, "please laugh at me" and also "please don't laugh at me." The rest of the application was much less embarrassing.. I might not be able to fake-play a ukulele (or REALLY play a ukulele), but I can write out an application for a ukulele, so there's that at least.

I wonder if Jennifer realizes that she's going to be drafted into learning the ukulele so she can teach me the ukulele...


  1. I can do that. First step, don't try learning anything on your guitar at home :)

    1. Don't worry, I'm incapable of learning the guitar without help. It is basically just in the living room to look pretty (and scare the dog).
