    In exchange for getting on the honor roll in 6th grade, Ryan asked his mom for a drum set. She must have forgotten the specifics, because at the end of the year when Ryan earned straight A's, she brought home a guitar! Though he was thoroughly disappointed, he grew to love the instrument and here we are--over two decades later and Ryan is still obsessed with guitar playing! You made the right call, Ma!
