Relief

Last night I was the emcee for a party we had with our church. Hundreds of people were there, but they were incredibly bored with our entertainment and so I felt that it was my responsibility to liven things up. So I sang "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera. It did not help, as I am not a singer and that is a terrible song for the kind of party we were trying to have. (Incidentally it is also a poor choice for someone to perform at a wedding reception. I think my friend Ganelle might know something about that.) So then everybody started to "Boo" me off the stage! However, I was undeterred in my quest to get this party going and I was sure that my breakdancing moves would do the trick. Except that I don't breakdance, and so that didn't go very well either. I hung my head in defeat, and feeling ridiculous and embarrassed I started to walk away. Then a wonderful thing happened!

I woke up.

Wow. What a relief. Where's Freud when you need him?

Ya gotta wonder when your new mother-in-law picks "Music of the Night" to be sung at your wedding reception. Hmmm....
I'm pretty sure that most people wouldn't want the word "garish" in ANY song performed at their wedding. (As in "turn your face away from the GARISH light of day...)

Wow - sounds a lot like our last ward service auction/dinner. Well, without the breakdancing, that is...
