Right as the timer stopped and I started the warmup, a kids trombone fell apart in their hands. The joint from the slide to the bell just let go. Down went the bell, up when the slide when he tried to catch it... Initially I just stood there in shock and stared for a good 30 seconds, but controlled my immediate desire to pounce.
Stuff happens.. and I'm proud I wasn't reactive.
The kid has an amazing attitude, good player, and always willing to help out.
