My Waist is Slender

My voice is tender, my waist is slender and I'm often invited to play. Yet wherever I go I must take my bow or else I have nothing to say. What am I?


  1. violin, Fiddle, etc

  2. By a long shot, wouldn't an hourglass fit the description as well? Not a tender voice, though.

  3. I'd have to agree with your logic Sudipta. Also, would you invite an hourglass to 'play' or what is the bow that it must take?

    Violin or any other string instrument with an accompanying bow is the answer.

  4. Yep... and the very same reason! You take an hourglass to time-based contests (pictionary or dumb-charades), and then it must bow (i.e. bend around) to play.

  5. That makes a lot of sense and it never would have occurred to me.
