When you learn to unicycle, you must first purchase a unicycle so you can practice it, right? Kind of an arrogant investment when you might really suck at it. I bet there are tons of garage sales with almost-new unicycles. For this reason, I've always been shocked that my parents purchased a keyboard for me when I was six, just because I WANTED to learn piano.
WHAT IF I SUCKED?? I was six - what the hell did I know?I remember thinking: man, they plunked down a couple hundred bucks for this thing - don't let it be like the baseball glove!! Be GOOD at this.
Thankfully it worked out okay. I became a singer/songwriter/semi-good, earned my parents' money back. But I've always been grateful that they believed in me and were continually my biggest cheerleaders. I did this song for my Mom, for her birthday, because I miss her and we used to sing it together all the time.... Really means a lot to me. Enjoy :) If you hate it, go buy your kid a unicycle. I hear you can get 'em cheap.
