I will never be a contestant on American Idol.

Today at work, Alanna, Tracy, and I were preparing a craft for our students to complete tomorrow. While we were cutting scarecrows out, I was singing Christmas music. (Aren't you glad you don't live with me anymore, Melissa?) Here is the conversation that took place: 

Me: "♫ In the meadow we can build a snowman. And we'll pretend that he is Parson Browwwn... ♫"

Alanna: "I feel like we're working in a factory and you're singing to keep our spirits up."

Me: "I just wish I could sing better."

Alanna: "You don't sound that bad."

Me: "That's one of the nicest things anyone has ever said!"

Alanna: "Really? Well, you sound better than me."

Me: "Even my Nan tells me I'm a horrible singer. And Grandmothers are supposed to lie to you and tell you that you're the best at everything!"

Alanna: "That's how people who can't sing end up on American Idol. 'But my grandmother says I'm a great singer!'"

Me: "Well, there's no danger of that happening; my grandmother tells me not to quit my day job!"


  1. There are so many things that I miss about us being roommates (Gilmore Girls nights, dance parties, Sunday suppers, you just being 10 steps down the hall, cooking with you in the kitchen...) but I must say, Christmas carols in October is not one of them. You'll be happy to know that I still have a strict "no Christmas carols until December 1st rule!" But I love you nonetheless :)

    This post made me smile and miss you btw!

  2. I too have been singings Christmas Carols! Jingle on, my friend. Jingle on.
