Here’s something you don’t hear an Asian say often: “I LOVE THE BANJO!
Frankly, I don’t hear a lot of white people say it, either, and this makes me sad.
When I expound on my adoration for this beautiful instrument, I often get weird looks. Maybe it’s because I don’t fit the “bluegrass” mold, or maybe people aren’t aware of how wonderful it is, or maybe it’s because I have a giant banjo with the words “Hootenanny 4 Life” in a blackletter font tattooed on my neck. (Mom, I’m kidding. Please stop sweating.)
