My secret not singing.

Deep in my heart, I know that I have an undiscovered talent. One day, I will do something I have never done before, and instantly, I will be brilliant at doing it. I have really done a lot of research to narrow down what this could be.

For the longest time, I swore I was an EXCELLENT singer. I would sing in the car and think I sounded awesome. Yes, I might have been relegated to the chorus in school musicals, I knew my talent was too great to be kept to the chorus for long. I thought that when I was promoted from "Student Number Four" to "Student Number Three" and given FOUR lines in my school's production of "Little Miss Christie," I was on my way to stardom. Sadly, I eventually realized that I didn't really have any singing talents.

But secretly? I still hope that my singing talent will develop. I have ventured into the realm of karaoke a few times as of late and have found out that I can hit about three (3) notes. Please do not ask me WHICH notes, because I could not tell you. These three notes, so long as I only sing THOSE notes, can give people the impression that yes, I can sing. Sadly, those are the only three notes I can sing, no matter how hard I try. I actually had a really embarrassing experience in the car the other day try to belt out a Katy Perry tune (DO NOT JUDGE ME) and my voice cracked. It was at this moment that I realized that my secret talent would never be singing. (Either that, or I hit puberty again.) While I might be able to fool a few friends in a private room up at Lincoln Karaoke, I know that those three notes will never translate into an awesome talent. Sigh.

I'm pretty sure that beer made me think that I could hit four notes, not just three.

The search continues.

While I have found some things that I can do well such as cooking (sometimes), drinking wine (ALWAYS), and dancing (that's more of a former skills these days are rather sad), I still will continue searching for the one thing I can do better than almost anyone else.

But not singing. Well. Not right now.

  1. Truth be told, we can't all sing like Christina Aguilera. And after last Sunday's smashing performance, perhaps that's quite ok after all.

    You don't have to sing like a superstar to sing well. And you don't have to make money at it to be awesome.

    Wrangle that inner crazy chick and don't give up.
