ok, you play the violin pretty well, and the auction house asks you to play a violin they will be presenting at auction to get your opinion of how well it sounds and plays. You say, sure, where is it?
They hand it to you and you roll it around looking at all sides, feel the wood finish and then play it… and you know what, it sounds pretty damn good!
Then they tell you that you just played a $2 million dollar instrument….
how's that make you feel?
I would not care about the 2 million dollars worth, but the historical value…. omg my hands would tremble, I would smell it and yes pic also please! Imagine all the people who played it, all the songs it sang!
I believe the terms that come to my mind are:
A dream come true….
I'd play the sadest most beautiful piece I could find in the back of my mind and pray I could get a copy of the tape!
No one in my family would ever believe me unless I had an interview afterwards and they said what it was on camera! LOL
ok, you comedy the violin appealing well, and the bargain abode asks you to comedy a violin they will be presenting at bargain to get your assessment of how able-bodied it sounds and plays. You say, sure, area is it?
They duke it to you and you cycle it about attractive at all sides, feel the copse accomplishment and again comedy it… and you apperceive what, it sounds appealing abuse good!
Then they acquaint you that you aloof played a $2 actor dollar instrument….
how's that accomplish you feel?1st-place
Well, if I found out after playing it and saying it was good that it was a 2 million dollar violin, I'd probably wish I had 2 million dollars.
But if I played a pretty violin and decided it sounded good and then they told me it was a 2$ actor's prop instrument? I'd take out my wallet and say "I'll take seven of them, please." And I would take them home and name them after the days of the week and consider myself to be living in the lap of luxury as much as I would if I were a millionaire. If they want to laugh, let them laugh. I'd laugh plenty.
I'd also probably tell people, "Well, those 2 million dollar violins, they're nice.. but $999,998 worth of nice? Too rich for my blood. I'll stick with these."
