When you dream that you are trying to install a Steinway grand sample on your old upright. That can be somewhat problematic, so you are happy to wake up and find that your old piano sounds more wonderful than ever.

when you meet someone and discover that he/she plays piano and suddenly your interest towards that person increases dramatically

when you respond "a piano" when asked what would be the single one object that you would bring to a deserted island instead of more "survivalistic" objects

when you don't speak whenever you are resting

when you carry 88 keys in your pocket

...when someone ask 'what is your type of beauty', you mentally flick through images of hot pianists

...you wake up and you hear some music in your head, so you must go play, because it won't go away, and then suddenly you end up not having time for breakfast

...you move your hands in funny ways in public

...you are extremely annoyed by the fact that finger 4 won't move up when all other fingers are clenched in a fist

...you wonder if you can get your toes to move separately

...you were disappointed by the movie 'Shine' because there wasn't enough playing in it

You are obsessive about keeping your nails short.

You live in terror of a hand injury.

You bottom hurts.

I've got some good control on my right side toes, but my left side toes just don't do what I tell them to.

I guess I gotta keep working on toe independence! laugh

When you realise you've never seen what your piano looks like with the lid closed.

I had this realisation tonight, and it actually took a little while to figure out how to close the lid without trapping my fingers. In case you were wondering, it's really shiny, almost as if no dust has ever fallen on it. grin For a second there I was sad that I don't have the key, but quickly decided it'd be the least useful key I owned if I did have it!
