So I’m at the computer watching a YouTube video of Trifonov playing the 3rd Chopin scherzo.

The boy walks up and says “Woah, that guy is way better than you at the piano!”

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Nothing is as effective as homeopathy.

I'd rather listen to an hour of Abba than an hour of The Beatles.

Ouch! :lol:
Identifying narcissists isn't difficult. Just look for the person who is constantly fishing for compliments
and admiration while breaking down over even the slightest bit of criticism.

We have the freedom to choose our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences.

Please tell me you didn’t just leave that one hanging with no comeback.

”Yeah. But even with a lung transplant I could still kick your ass.”

Actually, I laughed out loud. And like any kid, when he genuinely makes you laugh, he'll repeat it. So he told me again.

Was it still funny the second time around?

It was cute. He was really proud of himself for making me laugh so much.

I’m surprised. Isn’t he used to that difference in piano skills from other videos you watch occasionally on your computer, from another guy? You know whom I’m talking about, the one who is also particularly good looking.

So today - almost exactly 2 months later - he says to me ‘why do you take piano lessons, you’re so good’.

I didn’t bring up The Trifonov Incident.

You should have answered with a quote from Confucius, such as this one:
Quote:
 
Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.

The Deepak Chopra quote generator would be another possibility.
