23 before 24 update

7. Sing ONE Karaoke song.

Let's get something straight. I do not like to be center of attention. In my mind I do. But in real life, when I'm in public, I'm bound to do something awkward and embarrassing so I just steer clear from any and all situations that result in me being the COA. (That's what we called it in high school. I'm 12. [pronounced co-uh])
Anyyyyway. Last night we went to Daniel Tosh's standup which was amazing. First time seeing a comedian in real life and I'm a fan.

Then all my friends went to their usual bar which we have not gone to since that one night that crazy old man accosted me and all my friends watched and laughed. You guys, he grabbed my shoulders and was like "COME DANCE!!!" and I was like, " thanks...." and he kept laughing and shaking me and yelling at me to dance with him. Evan was singing and so no one was there to protect me. My bff is sitting 1 inch from me and missed the entire thing. I know if she saw she'd protect me. Because I'm incapable of protecting myself.

The point of that story was to tell you that now I'm scared of going places. Even my favorites. That, and ohIhavetowakeupat6am. Yuck. 

But we conquered my fears and we went to the bar and I didn't get accosted. And all my friends keep saying, "when are you going to sing? it's on your list. tonight tonight tonight!!!" shut up in here, you guys! I have a million years before I'm 24. 

But Evan rudely put my name in to sing with him and all of the sudden I was pulled up to the little stage and a mic shoved in my sweaty hand and I was singing my favorite song ever. With Evan, of course.

I'm not gonna lie, it was kinda fun. I might even do it again. Jamie's a pro and junk but she's pretty ambitious. I'm a wallflower.

Told you I'm awkward. With my hand on my hip? Jamie does that so I did, too. What are you suppose to do with your non mic hand? Sometimes I held the mic with 2 hands like a 3-year-old and her sippy cup. I'm cool.

Ps. We sang, "The man who can't be moved" by The Script. But that's Xenia from The Voice and I like her version better because she's a girl so she changed the lyrics to accommodate that. And by "we sang" I mean Evan sang and I mouthed the words. Jk. I sang. But you couldn't hear me. Thank God.

Who cares, though? I crossed it off my listy! Now only .......twenty one to go. hahaha lovely.

6 loves:

  1. ha ha ha. So fun! I am glad you didn't get accosted! ha. And you know. I have never done Karaoke. YAY for getting up there and doing it. :) Woo hoo!

  2. LOVE this! Karaoke is so much fun! So glad you did it :] And I'm glad there weren't any crazy old men after you this time, either ;]

  3. Haha, I'm SORRY! I should have been there to save you when the man accosted you! I need to pay more attention to my surroundings. Especially the things happening two feet from my head. Anyway, I'm totally proud of you for getting up here. I think you need to do a duet with ME and then a solo song. Yup. =]

  4. Crazy old men are the worst. Unless they're just not bothering you. Then, whatever.
