A couple of funny stories about singing.

My sister says, "You know how horribly I sing, right? But my little daughter must have a really bad taste in music because she keeps asking me to sing."

"I don't think she has a bad taste," I replied. "I think she just has a great sense of humor."

"So how much do you love me?" I ask my husband.

"Honey," he says. "I heard you sing, and I still think you are the most wonderful woman in the world."


"Have you tried singing with your students like we discussed in our previous class?" asked my methodology of teaching professor.

"Oh no," I said. "I don't think this department can afford 15 lawsuits demanding compensation for the psychological damage I caused students with my singing."

"I'm completely broke," I told my friend. "But I'm not worried because I can always make money by sitting in the square and singing."

"I had no idea you sang," she said. "I think it's great that you can make some extra cash by singing for money."

"No," I said. "I meant that if I started singing in the square, people would pay me good money to shut up."

Um.I wonder if your,Clarissa, aspieness was ever an obstacle for a singing especially in front of others. (It took serious efforts for myself,poor Aspie, to start even to speak=communicate,and later in the life to start to sing--despite a perfect pitch I never dared to make aloud sounds.Its appeared though,I have a good voice:-))

Ha. I never considered this possibility but now you've made me think whether you might be right. I know this feeling of when your throat locks down and you can't make any sounds come out. I also know how it feels when words get all jumbled in your head and wouldn't come out.

I wonder if singing might be related to this now. Interesting. Thanks for the suggestion!
