A sentimental stunt

When I entered the narrow hallway with the laminate fake wood flooring, Soula's teenage son had already set up the keyboard there for me to try it out. He asked me if I was a musician, and what I was going to do with this old keyboard. I briefly went through the presets, played a few notes, then paid the 40 € and left for the S-train back home. After another 1 1/2 hours I’d set up the Technics SX-K350 keyboard just like Leonard Cohen had, 31 years ago, in the Tower of Song:
