Make sure it is Saturn and not Uranus.
Nevermind--you have baggy pants.
Myanus - Vulgano, this is about spit.
I just dump mine wherever I happen to be standing. The people that are familiar with the trumpet know why and generally understand and those that know nothing about the trumpet don't even know what I am doing. If they mention the puddle, I just explain that all live animals have natural behaviour.
Empty often, then there is no "stream" to grab attention.
If it ever became an issue (a wedding or something), I would simply rubber band a suitably sized piece of sponge (they are available in decorator colors and can be cut into cool shapes) under the spit key/valve.
ditto - I don't worry - if someone hires a trumpet they should expect to be spit on.
OMG the best answer yet. Leave to Rowuk to come up with THE SOLUTION to my thread. A thready solution at that. Thanks Rowuk, man are you posts golden!
My sponge would be dripping in about 15 minutes...
Rowuk suggested a "suitably sized" piece of sponge - for you that might be pretty big (and correspondingly more awkward to explain)?
I need to attach a drool bucket, a la the old Saturday Night Live skit...
If it's been posted, my apologies. Sometimes I just don't want to wade through post after post of off-topic silliness. Don't mind it to an extent. Helps build community. But a little self moderation after a point might be appropriate. Should one really have to wade through ten pages just to read a few actual answers to an OP? Anyway . .

The real question is, is Dale truly sponge worthy?
