Happy National Karaoke Week!


Brace yourself. It is National Karaoke Week.

Wow. What a time to be alive.

Now, I have never actually been to Karaoke. Well….never actually participated in Karaoke. But the thought of it, right? Very exciting! I have “a song”. You know when Pandora sends you the song you most listened to the whole entire year? Yeah, my song is the same every single year. I know you think it is going to be spiritual and meaningful and may even bring you to tears. So inspirational, so powerful. Thank you for thinking so highly of me.

However.

It is “Ice, Ice, Baby”. If we can’t be friends anymore, I understand. Actually, wait. I do NOT understand. What happened to, “Hey, you be you…”. I can’t explain my fascination with this song. I’ve tried. I can’t tell you why I LOVE it. And I do LOVE it.

I can’t tell you why I know every word or why I crank it up SO LOUD (that loud!) every single time it comes on, which is often. I can only tell you my heart is forever bound to this song. I know every word. I have my own dance moves. If Vanilla Ice ever had an emergency, he could call me. I’m ready for it. 


I’m telling you all of this so you will schedule some karaoke time this month. My guess is most of you have never written “karaoke time” in your planner. Me either. But how much fun is it to turn off the world for a bit and sing at the top of your lungs? I think its pretty fun. I’m sure going to find out.
