Musician discusses toes, pianos, being a smart dolphin rather than a dumb shrimp

WILDCAT: This is so cool that you guys have a piano in here.

PADILLA: Yeah, I think we just got it.

WILDCAT: Oh really? Are you just learning how to play?

PADILLA: Yeah, I've been playing for a while, but I kinda feel out of practice since high school. So I'm kinda relearning.

WILDCAT: Yeah, all I can play is "Chopsticks," and I'm not that good.

PADILLA: Oh really?

WILDCAT: Yeah, true story. So, do you dance around when you play shake your groove thing?

PADILLA: No, not at all.

WILDCAT: Have you ever tried to play with your toes?

PADILLA: No, never.

WILDCAT: Really? My best friend has really long toes and she can play with them. She just had a baby, and his toes are like little French fries, they almost touch his nose.

PADILLA: Really?

WILDCAT: No, I made that up. But they are really long. So, um If you had to choose between being a dolphin and a shrimp, which would you be and why?

PADILLA: A dolphin and a shrimp?

WILDCAT: Yep, a dolphin and a shrimp, crazy little sea creatures.

PADILLA: Well, dolphins are a whole lot smarter than shrimp.

WILDCAT: This is true, however, it would be fun to say you were a shrimp. You could be like, "Look at me, I'm a shrimp."

PADILLA: Dolphins are probably a whole lot smarter than shrimp because they can stay out of nets.

WILDCAT: Yes, yes, this is true. However, because they are shrimps, they can weasel their tiny little shrimpy bodies out of the net. See, they're not so dumb. Ooh, ooh, I love Sea World because they have those crazy little dolphins that do tricks. Kooky.

PADILLA: Yes.

WILDCAT: I secretly want one, but my parents never bought me one.
