Driving While Trumpeting, Chapter 2
There was, understandably, some skepticism among readers when I wrote recently about driving along a major interstate highway and seeing a guy playing a trumpet while steering. Trumpet Man kept his thighs pressed against the wheel for stability and leaned forward to hold his shiny brass trumpet over the top of the wheel as he played the instrument at a volume high enough for me to hear.
Some folks were so doubtful of this account that they challenged my ability to discern that Trumpet Man was driving a beautiful 1965 Bonneville.
Well, you'll just have to take my word for the truth of that account, but if it helps any, here's corroborating evidence in the form of another account of Driving While Trumpeting, from reader Jeff Schwartz, who, unlike me, has photographic proof.
Schwartz's trumpeter is a different guy from mine, who was lean and scraggly, but mine also was viewed in the New York metro area, for whatever that's worth. Next time, I gotta take a pic.
