My package is so small that it needs a bloody microscope for it to show up!!!

I am not proud; but after this stage where everyone is overcoming something, I think I can find a lady who knows how to love an incomplete man!!!! There has to be more than one oF me who is MAN enough to admit that he is half-sized in the package department...

Thanks f or helping me out myself... This is part of my recovery...

I'd be chuffed by that comment! Just proves that there's magic in those old tubs...

How beat up are they?

I have had a few maybe they aren't odd but they are funny.

1. Sound guy at a club "are those real slingerlands or did you pop a sticker on there to look cool"

2. Random guy from a rap group at a fest show during sound check "yo that bass is bumping!" he also said "yo check out that bass amp it's tight" the man loves his low end I guess.

3. Some other drummer at a show "20 inch floor tom?! Can I touch it?"

"That's whats up."

-Rapper at a gig who was opening for my band a few years back upon seeing my Slingerland kit.

"That's whats up."

-Same rapper after hearing my band play.

Maybe he just says that all day about everything. Can't be sure.

-Adam
