The Instrument


"Ever since Sidney made that radio announcement, the Klippensteins keep going on about how I don't play my mandolin," said DeeDee.

"Oh, the poor dears," said Vern.  "So you do play it?!"

"Of course I play it!  Sometimes twice in one day."

"But the strings—"

"So it has eight strings.  It's still a mandolin," said DeeDee.

"I thought it had six."

"We've been over this."

"Oh, right.  It used to have six, now it has eight."

"Yes."

"Somebody needs to tell the Klippensteins," said Vern.

"Two of them aren't real," said DeeDee.

"The Klippensteins?"

"No, the strings."

"Ohhh!" said Vern.

"Two of them," she repeated.
