Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is beyond the powers of man

Picking up the piano was fine. Getting the piano into the trailer was fine. Getting it out was fine. Getting it up the stairs was not. I have pathetically weak thigh muscles.

The two friends I had Shanghai:ed to help me managed to wrestle the thing up one flight of stairs. Two to go. Two curving flights of stairs. So we took a break. A long break. Then we called what could only be described as a lean, mean carrying machine, and voila! Problem sorted.

Drinking of beer, eating of tacos and laughing ensued. A good time was had. And the piano was finally home.

As a side note: I misunderstood the reference. 'twas not the Hummer Fucker Crusher. 'twas the Hummer Fucker. The Hummer Fucker Crusher is the big-ass Hummer that crushes the Hummer Fucker for having a sticker across the back window that says...wait for it...Hummer Fucker.

Still a long story. Still won't go into it.

The one friend I have who owns a piano says "ALWAYS hire a professional to move your piano. They know what they are doing and they have insurance".
