Hubby: Do you remember what this is?
Curly: It's a... uhm.... uhm.... it's called a....
Hubby: It's called a "fermata"
Curly: Oh yeah, a fermata.
Hubby: Do you know what you do when you see one?
Curly: Do you play faster?
Hubby: No way!
Curly: Oh, you slow down.
Hubby: If there is a director, what do you do?
Curly: Oh, THEN you play faster!
Hubby: Noooo, you do what?
Curly: Play really fast?
Hubby: No, you watch...
Curly: Oh! You watch the director and hold the note really, really long.
Hubby: Yeah, something like that.
Curly: It's sort of like a decrestation.
Hubby: You mean a decrescendo?
