Let me start this thread.

You know you've played too much piano when...

1. Playing Hanon exercises start sounding like really catchy songs.

2. At rock concerts, you rather watch the pianist at work instead of the whole band.

That's funny. Because I often tend to focus my attention to the pianist instead of the whole band. But I do not consider this to be a "problem", I just try to watch how the piano works and tend to "isolate" the piano sound from the rest of the sounds.

when you start tapping any horizontal surface

when you feel sad when a song doesn't have piano in it

when you take piano scores with you on the bus/train and read them

when you don't care your musical taste is a minority in society/friends

when a piece starts playing in your head according to your mood/situation

When you're going through a score at Starbucks as if you were the director, a lady stares at you, grabs some sugar in order to take a look at what you're doing and says: Oh... pianist. Then goes back and sits with her friend.

When you date a girl and the vast majority of your topics are piano-related. Then she starts talking about Justin Bieber and you know you MUST leave.

when you are in the eighth floor of a building, and you think you are an octave higher with respect to ground

when you think you can start a conversation in Italian just because you know what Da Capo, presto, forte, etc mean

when you live in A-flat in DC that you can only enter with a sharp key

When you dont have to trim your nails anymore, because the piano keys are wearing them down enough.

when you have "dinged" your cup of coffee in the microwave for the sixteenth time... oh YES, do you do that as well?

When Casio doesn't sound like a calculator, Yamaha doesn't sound like a bike, and when the most interesting thing in a car are the pedals! (I'm getting my driver's license next year, I hope I'll not push the gas anytime the song in the radio changes chords...)

Also when you have an irresistible urge to beat everyone with 88 combo in Texas hold'em!

lol that's typical for me too laugh Luckily I've learned NOT to sit and play something while I'm using the oven... the smell was horrible laugh

You play piano too much if you get this joke AND think it is funny:

An E, a G and a B walk into a bar. And the bartender says.. "Sorry, we don't serve minors."

BA-DA-DUM!

When you inform your spouse, in all seriousness, that you need to build a piano room addition to your home with separate HVAC system so you can control the humidity better than it currently is.

When you see the #88 bus at the bus stop and automatically think of piano keys.



“The doubters said, "Man cannot fly," The doers said, "Maybe, but we'll try,"
And finally soared in the morning glow while non-believers watched from below.”

When your digital piano doesn’t work fine, and you think of purchasing a new one, instead of sending your current piano under warranty. Because you don’t bear the idea of staying without playing piano for one month.
