Funny Things

These nothing like a roomful of Unitarians with karaoke equipment to put a smile on my face.  Yes, we sang, "Blowing in the Wind."  Yes, small children sang "American Pie."  Yes, I sang, "Diamonds Are Forever."  

And yes, I did belly dance during my rendition of They Might Be Giant's "Istanbul (not Constantinople)."

But, no, I did not sing "Missionary Man," but I could have.  And no, I didn't have the best voice in the room -- it was some 20-year old with a scratchy alternate rock voice.

In the "Heard Today Department"

My dad: "... and if we die you guys will get to clean out the house, mwah-ha-ha-ha!"

Suddenly, where I got my sense of humor seems much more clear.
