Carpe Diem #1000 Reed


Persons watching preparations of bands will observe an interesting thing.  Some of the musicians may have what looks like a piece of wood in their mouth.  These are reeds for their instruments.  The reeds have to be moist to properly vibrate during the playing of the instruments.  While not the ideal way to wet the reeds used in wood wind instruments it is certainly the most handy in a football stadium.
