Crying Piccolo Girl spoke with VUHoops.com about her ridiculous week– from a senior bio piccolo player to a guest on Jimmy Fallon. Her phone died briefly after she was on TV, and once she got connected again, her first thought was to turn to Twitter:
My first reaction was “How did this happen?” but not in a good way. I didn’t really know how to handle it. I knew I had to go into Twitter to formulate some feeling about it. The first thing I saw was all the notifications. I figured the best thing to tweet was my Villanova Wildcats tweet.
But right after I did that I got a Twitter troll. I thought “Oh no, it’s this kind of thing. I’m going to get harassed about it.” And then I started to get worried. But I also got notes of encouragement saying everything would be okay.
Who did you meet behind the scenes of Fallon, and who was your favorite?
Well, I met Jimmy Fallon, all of The Roots, Bubba Watson; all were fantastic. Bubba Watson is so down to Earth, just so nice. He actually asked to take the picture with me! All of The Roots were so welcoming. I was so appreciative of them sitting back and working in this new thing into what they do- they have their own set up, but they were willing to fit me in. A piccolo doesn’t fit with their instrumentation at all, and they learned the fight song and rehearsed it. They were all so kind. Questlove gave me a pair of custom drum sticks. Jimmy Fallon is just as friendly on camera as off camera. He made me feel so comfortable!
Worth is for the Bubba pic alone. A couple other things: 1) Love the instant reaction to check Twitter. 2) One troll?! That’s it? Gotta say– I didn’t think you had it in you, America. Piccolo girl got off lucky. I can’t eat my lunch without getting trolled.
