You can't hide from who you are


John was asked by the choir director of our church to sing in a barbershop quartet. He reluctantly agreed. Last night at his first practice he found out that the quartet's purpose was to perform in The Music Man! Haha! They have auditions tonight.

In his younger years John used to be a part of a teenage singing group called Colorado Gold. I wish I had a picture of him from those years. He continued to do musicals in high school (including the infamous Fiddler on the Roof where a goth girl licked him on the face while applying his make-up). Since then he has tried to participate in church choir. John argues that he is not "one of those" choir people - you know, the ones that were also in drama and tried to talk in English accents all day - but I think the truth is surfacing. If I may say, I think my husband does have an amazing voice and I hope he gets to share it.

The Music Man is awesome! You'll have to get footage of it (and hopefully some footage from high school). And gross getting licked by the goth girl. . . .

Brian's first rule for Church Politics: Never, ever accept an asignment/invitation/demand to sing for a public performance. You volunteer to sing once, and you will be hounded for the rest of your days with requests for new performances. It's a slipperty slope that you will never escape from.

They should just call him to be choir director now.
