Aaron and me at Mason High School at Music for All. His Symphonic Band was one of the first performances of the day. It wasn't a competition, but they did get evaluated. I missed his other concerts this year, and I did want to hear the snare drum and other percussion instruments he played. (The snare drum was awesome.)
And no, I'm not short. I'm not as tall as I once was, but I'm not short. It's just that Aaron is - tall.
