    Kind of like a guided meditation to unlock creativity…nice joke at the end! Yes, Tara is tapping away, but not everything she writes has to be great just because it comes easy for her. And maybe Luann will wake up refreshed and think of something different for her…not humor but something more thoughtful.

    In the excellent movie Stalag 17, there was an American character named Joey who had snapped after witnessing his bomber crew mates get killed during a bombing run. The one thing that kept him “grounded” was his ocarina. In the movie, German Camp Sargent Schultz called it a “piccolo” but it looked like an ocarina. Certainly, Joey obtained a “replacement” carved gift ocarina after his got broken.

    Crazy Joey never spoke, but “played” his ocarina at inappropriate times, like during the camp commandant’s condescending speech or during an escape attempt.

    I’m surprised some schmuck hasn’t gone around annoying “folks” by playing one at a library or something, then uploading the reactions to Tik-Tok.

    Then there was the case of the guy who took a harmonica to the zoo and handed it to an orangutan…….., ;-)

    Well, we think wind flutes may go back 12,000 years. But the only thing they have in common with the instrument in today’s strip is the fact you blow in them. The instrument in today’s strip was invented in the 19th century.

    I have very embarrassing memories of me falling asleep in class, even at the university. It’s never nice when it happens and then you feel very awkward thinking about it. On the other hand, it’s so nice to see Luann smile with such a happy and relaxed expression!Maybe all that enthusiasm tired her, maybe that sound is way too much relaxing, maybe she thinks to have finally found her way. Let’s hope she’s dreaming, happy dreams where she’s studying circus arts in Italy or learns how to weld. Kudos to Mrs Horner for playing the instrument instead of putting on a tune. The ocarina can be truly exciting live.
