Reality: daily life

Today, one of the First Grade kids gave me a mug with music notes on it. 

I said, "Let's see what this music sounds like", and went over to the piano to play.

She looked at the piano as I was playing, and then at me, and then said, "Are you playing those notes that are written on the mug??"


"Wow!!! That's sooo cool!"

Well, uh, yeah. It kinda is, isn't it.
