I have been talking to some of my co-workers over the past few week about music.  One of which expressed interest in wanting to learn to play an instrument.  I told her about the MO and how it was an easy instrument to learn.  I was going to give her one of the cards that came with them, but I couldn't find any so I gave her the URL to the MO website.  I was going to play a couple of songs for her after work Friday but that didn't work out.  I did end up playing part of a favorite song for another coworker so taking it to work wasn't a total waste of effort.  Who know she may just place an order.

I always have my Ocarina at work as I am never away from work. I stayed out 3 months last time. I came back on the 5th.  I was in Lathrop California picking up a trailer from a repair shop. I was waiting for the yard driver to bring the trailer to me from the fenced yard area. He was taking his sweet time about it. It took him 2+ hours to bring it out. While waiting I played my ocarina while watching an adjuster doing a photo shoot of a wrecked, brand new, med blue, Ford pickup. It was a really nice truck till it was mangled in the left front. I grabbed the ocarina and rolled down the drivers window to get a breeze. I played for about 20 minutes. It was more of a practice session. I did make some errors. I got out to go back inside the business to see what was holding me up. The adjuster asked if I was playing some type of instrument. He said he thought I was listening to the radio or a cd. He said it sounded really good. He wanted to see the instrument. I showed him the ocarina and he was puzzled that all that sound came out of that little black plastic whistle. I explained that it was easy to play and that I got it over the internet. We talked for about another 15 minutes and then he had to leave. I finally got my trailer and got it loaded and headed out for Atlanta, Georgia.

Now that's a great story and a wonderful testament to the MO! Sometimes they are introduced to others in way we do not anticipate. Thanks for sharing!

That is a great story cerescop.  It stinks that you are out on the road for months at a time, but I am glad that you have adjusted to that lifestyle. 

I did take my  MO to work again Friday, I played for a couple of co workers and ended up attracting a much larger group than I had planned on.  The sound carried much further than I thought it would in that noisy environment.  I would have done that sooner but I work in a food processing plant and they have very strict rules about stuff like that. The only reason I went for it then is because that was a cleaning day so we can get by with a little more then.

On a side note I do think that one person (he is already a musician) is interested in buying an ocarina but wants to check out several other brands/ types.  I told him I didn't think he would find anything else that sounds as good for the money, but i understand him wanting to do his own research.
