Today was much better than… the last month or so. Other than getting a ton of stuff done at the office, I was treated to dinner at one of my very favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities by my mother-in-law (very sweet of her). Then, after that wonderful meal, Jamie and I headed over to a “sing-along party,” where I fully expected there to be tons of drinking and zero singing. Whooooaaaaa boy, was I wrong. Really, I’m not sure why I thought that because… you know… drinking leads to singing*.
Everyone gathered around the piano, and while it started out as a few Christmas carols, it ended up being… Queen? And Aerosmith? And the more 90s music that played, the more dramatic the singing. It was SO DAMN FUN. As Jamie put it afterward, “We really needed to have all that smiling.” It was great.
* Note that I do not sing. Even Happy Birthday. My voice is horrific and far too embarassing to share with others. So what do I do at a holiday sing-along? I take photos, of course.
