I honestly didn't know what to expect when a coworker shared a video called "Serenading the cattle with my trombone." The video opener, with just a man in a field, was pretty darn elusive. And, I thought: Damn it. I'm going to fall for this click-bait B.S. again. Well, I did. And, now here I am; 4:05 minutes older and not that much wiser.
Well, no. I take that back. Had farmer Derek Klingenberg and his YouTube channel existed during my middle-school days as a clarinet-turned-oboe player, I would've known how to bring all the
boys cattle to my yard. Maybe then I wouldn't have wasted many an evening practicing, trying to impress my neighbors with my burgeoning woodwind skills. Had Lorde even been born, I could've used her song "Royals" to do my own serenading like idol farmer Klingenberg.
I don't know, man. This video has me feeling some type of way. Baffled? Miffed? Beyoncé jealous? I don't know who I am anymore.
