OK, Let's talk about the fantasyland feeling.

I get in my truck.

I fight traffic for 30 to 60 mins

I park, lock, hide all of my things like my iPod, radio faceplate, etc.

I walk into the music store

The drum department is full of kids hitting everything in sight and making so much noise that I couldn't hear a cymbal if I wanted to

None of the drums are tuned

It never fails, No matter what I want to look at there will be someone standing there looking at the same thing

I buy $20 worth of heads, sticks, or another cheap thing.

I have to show my receipt to the doorman to leave the store

I go home

I spend $10 on fuel round trip

OK, Now the net experience

I make a vodka on ice

I open my laptop

I look

I click buy

I use PayPal

I get my receipt and tracking # via email

I wait four days

I even gave my UPS driver the code to my garage door so he puts the boxes inside for me.

I come home from work and its Christmas!

If there is a problem, I send it back without leaving home.
I kind of like old drums:)
