Hey, I took ballet for two years, unfortunately it got me nowhere with the
girls. They already knew the reason I was there :P No, with calrinet it's

gender it's usually attached to, however sillily.
(Is that a word?)

just gobbled up over $70 last saturday for a small adjustment, replacement
of corks and pads, reeds, a ligature, and cork grease.
