I was in 7th grade. I was asked to play at the 8th grade formal. I accepted with no questions. I played music and hoped people enjoyed the night. Then I got paid, surprisingly. I wanted to reject it. They insisted. I showed my parents. They were proud. Now I had my own money. I became a professional on that day.

Would your interest in music be diminished if you: Had declined the initial offer? Had declined the money?

What if your parents were not supportive? Would you even have had an instrument? Would it be a different one? Would your music education be the same?

What if you had messed up during the performance? How would that have changed the experience? Would you have still accepted the money?

what if while you were playing the boy or girl you loved was making out on the dance floor with your best friend?

What if suddenly, while you were playing, you realized the the giants stole your rhythm?

What if you met a future Oliner at that party, who only recalls that event by someone having been a wicked good DJ at it?

What if you instead became a professional by selling other services?

What if you woke up to find American currency was absolutely useless?

What if your instrument had broken? Would you still enjoy playing music?

What if your DJing at this 8th grade dance elevated you to superstar status and you ended up living the life of other child stars such as Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears?

What if the money was a test, and if you accepted it, your parents would be locked up forever?

What if DJ suddenly stood for Damascus Jersey?

What if you had an intense craving for pie because your 68 year old wife was just speaking to you about it that morning?

WHO were you playing? We all know know what, or who, you really were doing.

What if you funnel enough of a nation's gross domestic product through a bureaucracy, the gap between the upper class and everybody else usually compresses?
