Music


I have noticed I don't really enjoy too many female singers. There are a few, but the majority of them are men. I'm wondering if it might be because I like to pretend that whoever is singing is singing to me. I will notice myself imagining sometimes while listening to female singers that I'm that female singer. Which is ridiculous. I'm a ridiculous person.

I can't sing. Not at all. I WILL sing but it's nothing that anyone enjoys. I can rap when I'm drunk.

I'm grateful that I am aware that I can't sing. At least I'm in on the joke that is my voice. My mom thinks she can sing. One year for Christmas my sister got one of those little portable karaoke machines. The kind for use at slumber parties and things. Oh my Mom would love to show off her "skills" singing Bobby McGee. Now, that's not a song that most people can sing, not even good singers. My Mom thought she sounded great. I think she was serious. Were you serious, Mom? Well it wasn't great. She had fun though, that's what matters. I just wish she would have fun and know that she can't sing.

It's like in Dirty Dancing when Baby's sister thought she could sing.

Oh and that's a picture of me singing into a cheese stick. Of course. Now who wants to go to a bar with me?

I'll go to the bar with you, again. I enjoyed your singing. It was entertaining.

I think I pretend that the male singers are singing to me too... especially Bon Jovi or Gavin Rossdale. :)

I was at the bar with you when you were singing to that cheesestick! In fact, I snapped the photo. I love your singing.

This is why you're the best friend a gal could have, Fran.
I sing into a cheese stick, you cheer me on.
