It's one of my life goals to date/marry someone who plays the accordion. It's super nerdy and random. I blame it on:
Enjoying French films
That it's an instrument firmly rooted in folk music
Being in love with Beirut for five years
The fact that it has bellows, and I like saying that word.
The memory of an old, Florentine restaurant owner who came and played his accordion while we ate dinner
And that accordionists are just plain sexy
I also have a thing for guys who play the banjo.
