There is always a good solution.
Triana Vino was a happy, imaginative girl, a girl with one big aspiration - to play the drums in a band. But one big barrier lay in her way. To be good enough to play in a band Triana had to work out a lot, but she lived next-door to a lot of old aged people - many of them unwell - in a care home. She knew that the thud of beating drums and crashing cymbals would really get on their nerves.
Triana was a very kind girl. She always tried to find a way of practicing her drums without bothering other people. So, she had tried playing in the strangest places; an underground room, a kitchen, an attic, and even in a shower. But it was no good; there was always someone it would irritate. However, determined to practice as much as she could, Triana spent most of her time playing on books and boxes, and looking for new locations and environments to practice.
One day, while watching a knowledge documentary on Television, she heard that sound cannot travel in space, because there’s no air. At that moment, Triana Vino decided to become a sort of melodious astronaut.
With the help of a lot of time, a lot of books, and a lot of work, Triana built a space bubble. This was a big glass ball associated to a machine which sucked out all the air inside. All that would be left inside was a drum kit and a chair. Triana got into the space suit she had made, entered the bubble, turned on the machine, and..
She played those drums like a wild child!
It wasn't long before Triana Vino - 'The Musical Astronaut' - had become very famous. So many people came to see her play in her space bubble that she had to mount a pair of speakers so that everybody could pay attention to her play. Curtly afterwards she came out of the bubble and started giving concerts. Her fame spread so much that the government proposed that she form part of a unique space journey. Finally, Triana was a real musical astronaut, and had gone far beyond her first goal of playing drums in a rock band.
Years later, when they asked her how she had achieved all this, she thought for a moment, and said,
"If those old aged people next-door hadn't mattered so much to me, I wouldn't have gone to such lengths to find a resolution, and none of this would have ever happened."
