Ill Wind (flash fiction)


Ill Wind

In 2036 it was virtually voted unanimously to ban saxophone playing within the confines of the Earth. From now on if anyone had any deep desire to play the instrument they had to go off-planet to one of the space stations orbiting above, so long as no one else could hear them.

Other instruments being considered for the ban include the accordion, ukulele, bagpipes, and bongo drums.

  1. I love the idea of this ban-to-space instruments! Very creative.

    I had bagpipes at our wedding (I had booked an organist, but she broke her hand of all things and needed surgery the week of the wedding, haha). So many were horrified, whether it be for bagpipe hate or “cultural appropriation” since I only have a small portion of Scottish in me.
