    Smile Silly thought but serious virus for all ukulele players

    Warning to all ukulele players out there! I have just discovered a brand-new virus that affects all players. . If you catch this virus, You will experience constant urges to play and the urges get stronger until you can no longer resist it. I have decided to call it Ukulele-itis. If you can't play as often as you wish, the virus will get worse until you can get near your ukulele. If anyone else has this virus, please speak up. I myself have had it really bad recently. But I'm trying to lay off so I do not become addicted.
    .
    This is all a joke. The name of This virus actually came to me in a dream last night. Anyhow, has anyone else had this virus? LOL. Like I said, I've been trying to lay off.

    Don't know if I have the virus, but I definitely experience separation anxiety whenever I'm away from my ukuleles for more than a day or two!

    Oh yes! That is definitely a symptom. If anyone else feels like they can't be away from their uke for too long, then yes. That is a starting symptom. If anyone else has anymore symptoms, let me know. The best cure I guess would be to get back to your uke.

    I have a strange symptom - sometimes when I am not even holding an actual ukulele I find myself making strumming motions and forming chord shapes. I believe this is known as 'involuntary-air-uke-gesticulation'.

    Afflicted here too..watching for the NIH guys in the bio-hazard suits to approach. In the meantime, buy more ukes...one for the car (Outdoor), one for the bathroom (Kaka), you get the idea. I'm thinking of these uke boxers, just to taker the edge off when I need to leave the house.

    I get that sometimes too. But I have to kind of resist it because I don't want my mom and sister thinking I am crazy or something. I did forget to warn you though. It is contagious around ukulele players.

    Unfortunately, my screen reader does not read pictures. I am visually impaired. Anyhow, Ukulele-itis is highly contagious around other players. I guess it afflicts people differently. Separationm anxiety, Involuntary air uke Gesticulation and who knows what else. Honestly, I get a very mild case of heebie-jeebies when I am away from Kalea. She is my little kala soprano.

    I have been unofficially told that it is uncurable...I have simply accepted my plight and embraced my burning need for more Ukulele! :

    I have been visiting with friends and family and secretly wished it were socially acceptable to play my uke at the same time. Or at least hold it.

    Does falling asleep counting ukuleles fall into that ailment?
