Everyone was startled at the
Loud BBBLLLAAAGGGHHHH sound.
I had just sneezed
Into my trombone!
Instantly, most of the class turned
And looked my direction.
What awkward timing!
We were all in the middle of playing a song.
I felt kind of embarrassed.
I knew that was one thing
I wouldn’t do again.
But I let out a chuckle,
As the band class
Paused for a moment.
The moment passed.
The band played on.
