2.  You've got a hickey, but no lover 



3. You'll happily surrender a leg over an arm

4.  You feel sad when you see an instrument with loose strings 



5. You die a little each time you see an actor pretending to play 



6.  Your dry cleaner constantly moans of rosin stains on your pants

9. You stop yourself air-bowing on the train 



10. You brush your teeth at night with a bow hold
