Having been part of a drum corps is such an intrinsic part of my background that I never think much about how it started. Until I was recently asked, “So, how did you get into corps?”
I’m a level-headed sort of girl. Always have been. But joining drum corps was probably one of the most impulsive choices I ever made.
And it was all for a guy.
I have never told this story. Even my critique partner, who’s known me for over ten years hadn’t heard this one.
But, because I was asked, I talked about it in more detail for my publisher: It all began with a deep love of music (And a crush on a guy…)
Only twice in my life have I made impulsive decisions for a guy. The other one, I’m still married to.
