Thumb Drama

Scene: TWC Headquarters.  Katebits is practicing the viola.

*doorbell rings*  Katebits puts down her viola and answers the door to find Paul Gaustad standing at the door holding a viola case.  One thumb is bandaged.

Katebits: (sternly) Goose!  I thought we discussed this!  No viola lessons until your thumb is healed!

Goose: (angrily) HONK!

Katebits: I don’t care how much you love the viola!  I don’t know why, but apparently you need your thumb to play hockey.


Katebits: I asked Lindy, but he said no, you can’t just tape your stick to your glove so you don’t have to use your thumb.  You have no choice Goose!  You HAVE to let your thumb heal.  I’m sorry, no viola lesson today.

Goose: HONK?

Katebits: No.  No Guitar Hero either.

Goose: (quietly) ….honk?

Katebits: Of COURSE, you can still watch Project Runway tomorrow!  Just don’t use your thumb to work the remote control.


Katebits: Oh, I couldn’t agree more.  Kenley is a total cow.

(Katebits and Goose high five [with Goose’s healthy hand of course] and then Goose waddles away home.)

    I should have known that the not being able to play viola was the hardest part about this injury for Goose. Poor guy. He was so ready for some Perpetual Motion, and now it’s going to be WEEKS before he gets a chance to rock out to it again.

    Goose really does love to play Perpetual Motion. He says he’s going to try to learn it on the recorder or some other less thumb-oriented instrument. :P

    Maybe Crunchy could teach him how to play it on the triangle?

    Yikes. I seriously doubt Crunchy is a good teacher.

    Crunchy would be a KICKASS teacher. I mean, come on. Just look at that hairnet and those goggles. Nothing else says “amazing teacher” better than that.

    No viola AND no Guitar Hero for Goose? Poor little honker.

    Poor little honker.

    I can’t wait to hear Goose playing Perpetual Motion on the kazoo.

    Kate, WHY would you let Goose go home? I’d have kept him there to heal, serving him soup and possibly getting him liquored up so I could take advantage of him. You are much purer than I. *bows to Kate*

    You’re scenes are epic.
