– OMG 😱😱😱 What happened to the poor cello? 😱🙈😁

– Not sure, but I’d be more worried for the trampoline!!

– Both were just fine!!

– It’s sad that I didn’t think of the person holding the cello 😅😅

Good save there at the end.

Dear Librettists, take note: this is what slang sounds like when it’s sung.

It’s brain-hurtingly hard to imagine what Karlheinz would have thought of the hashtag #TheStockhausenGirl. ¶
