Dear Abby.....

Dear Abby...
I think my wife is cheating on me.

I am a working musician and, as you would expect, travel a lot.

dropped off around the corner and walking the rest of the way. I once
picked up the extension while she was on the phone and she got
very angry.

A buddy of mine plays guitar in a band. He told me that my wife and
some guy have been to his gigs!

He wanted to borrow my guitar amp. That's when I got the idea to find
out for myself what was really happening. I said "sure, you can use
my amp but I want to hide behind it and the gig and see if she comes
into the venue and who she comes in with". He agreed.

Saturday night came and I slipped behind my Marshall JCM800 half stack
to get a good view. I could feel the heat coming off the back of the

was at that moment, crouching down behind the amp, that I
noticed that one of the tubes was not glowing as bright as the other

Re: Dear Abby.....

I should have figured something was up when you started out with "I'm a working musician..." I'd probably progress a lot better musically if I ditched my job and became a true starving artist.
