I did karaoke once. That was enough, for me, and for everyone else’s aural health. I think I had conjured up a romantic idea of the experience from movies such as 27 Dresses and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Supposedly, you can impulsively grab a microphone and start belting out a song without any preparation, and even if you don’t have a great voice and are somewhat off-key, you’ll still sound okay and look adorable. 😍

Wrong! You have to start with a decent voice, know the song, especially when to start and stop, and have a sense of music generally. Which I do not. Otherwise you’re just filling the room with a cacophony of noise. It’s not fun for me to remember how awful I must have been. πŸ˜–

Though they don’t even know, I accept the gratitude of all future ears I won’t harass with my terrible “singing.” 🎢😜🎢

  3. I was reject from chorus in elementary school. I consider it an act of kindness to the human race to never do karaoke. I’m brave (or dumb) enough, just a really horrible singer.πŸ˜‚

  4. If there was one thing I wish I was good at, it would be singing in tune. Sadly, I never could. I’ve also never been to a place that had karaoke, either. We do have a little machine here at home we mess around with, though. πŸ™‚

  5. Damn, I give you a hell of a lot of credit… I use to sing, and I still don’t do karaoke. This was such a great little story!!!

  6. That is a very amusing take on the word karaoke.
    It doesn’t matter if you can’t sing as well as some people

    They can’t write as well as you.

  7. I’ve sung in choir and got good enough to not embarrass anybody, but the really main thing about karaoke is that you actually have to already know the song! And I never do. πŸ˜€

  8. I’ve also decided to never subject a roomful of strangers to listen to me sing out of tune, even though I know they won’t stand up and walk out on me. I do like hearing you sing though. I have fond memories of hearing Knock Three Times.
