Because when one person in the section gets sick, everyone in the section gets sick.

On the ninth day of Christmas gigs, my true love gave to me:

9 strings-a-sniff’ling
8 employees drinking
7 wicks-a-burning
6 nuts-a-cracking
5 broken reeds
4 sing alongs
3 French horns
2 music flubs

And a Partita in a bare tree.
