I got a piano! Well, a keyboard. But a piano!!!
2 years ago I bought a lovely upright piano. It had a lovely tone and I loved playing it. But when I moved to my apartment we weren’t able to get it up the stairs. So I very sadly gave it to a friend.
I looked and looked for a lightweight keyboard, but I couldn’t find one that I actually liked. Fast forward to this past Monday, when I checked Craigslist on a whim, and there it was: my piano. I contacted the seller and we set an appointment to meet. He was lovely, the piano was even lovelier, and we quickly settled on a price.
Off I scurried to get money and some blankets so I could transport my piano (My Piano!!!) safely. The seller showed me how to take the keyboard off the attached stand and helped to load it in the car (there was a moment in there where I accidentally dropped a piece of the stand because I was trying to be careful. If I had just done the normal thing and set it on the ground we wouldn’t have had a problem. C’est la vie) and then I was off with my piano! Hooray!
