Hi Jane

I like your story better too. It makes sense. You know, like the full
moon exerts a "tidal" pressure on our bodies, (causing physical
discomfort)  or uterus, (causing childbirth) or brain sac fluid (causing
bizzare mind alterings) etc., etc.

No doubt we musicians get all screwed up on tidal pressure too.
Especially those trumpet players who have excess back pressure affecting
the brain to begin with, which is then exacerbated by the full moon
tidal pressure making it even worse. Especially if they use that old
hokum show stopper of playing with the bell under water in a fish bowl.

No wonder they are a bit teched in the head once a month.
