The Precarious Piano Playa

Walter, is that you I hear practicing?

Yes mother, that’s me.

That sounds terrible.

Sorry, mother, but it’s a new technique I’m trying out.


Yes, mother. It may take a while for me to perfect it.

Well, from what I hear, I would imagine so.

Don’t worry mother. By the time I’m done, it’ll sound well-heeled.

It sounds well-heeled already, Walter. Sounds like you’re walking on the piano keys.

That’s the way it’s supposed to sound, mother. Like I said it’s a brand-new technique.

Well, I hope it gets old real fast or you get better at it even quicker.

Oh, mother, I will get better. Along with wonderful outfits and candle light.

What did you say, honey?

I will be the best of the best –the greatest piano entertainer ever, or my name isn’t Liberace.

  1. Liberace–gotta love him!
    Piano players can be very flamboyant. It was my pleasure to see the late Ray Manzarek perform at Red Rocks with Robby Krieger, Ian Astbury, and Stewart Copeland. Ray played with his feet and head at one point, and it still actually sounded great. I was so saddened to hear that he had passed on.

  2. LOL!! The last line made me laugh. I love the unconventional rendering of the dialogue – it sounds just like the kind of conversation you’d hear between a mother and her young son. Thanks for another gorgeously creative VisDare!
