After much thought and reflection, I have decided to pursue my first loves--modern dance and the xylophone.
My ribs are like a xylophone, and the knobs of my spine stick up like ponderous cairns in the landscape of my back.
One can play a xylophone solo on them with practice, he said, but it is dangerous, since a certain pitch would crack them.

"Yes, Popper," said the girl, and Jack's heart began to play the anvil chorus on the xylophone of his ribs.
When I arrived in my garret I swore I was through and seriously thought of studying the xylophone.
So they began to cuss, amiable, and throw down dollars on the bar till it sounded like a selection on the xylophone.
She had never heard such a tattoo, nor seen such a 186 xylophone, nor yet so fine a fellow as Billie.
It thrashed its bony arms impatiently and its ribs rattled like a xylophone.
The orchestra employed is the usual large modern orchestra, with a piccolo, glockenspiel and xylophone.
