Mine is kind of silly. The mother (when she was still "The Mother") played a uke on one of the last episodes a few months ago and I loved it. I then found myself on YouTube, watching a cover of "Wanna Be Like You", and wanted to learn. My roommate found out and gave me her like new Kohala Soprano. I didn't get REALLY into it until just after my 23rd birthday (April 3). I can't go a day without playing now!!!
