The Single Senior Does Karaoke


           I rarely sing in public. That’s because when I was in elementary school the chorus teacher asked me to mouth the words, but not sing, on the evening of our performance. I finally got over my phobia of singing in public when I became a children’s librarian. The kids don’t care if you can’t carry a tune as long as you are enthusiastic and ask them to sing along.

One Thursday evening, Steve and I went to The Wandering Donkey, a new taqueria in Munds Park. We shared a scrumptious steak quesadilla. We drank some beer to accompany our meal, then Steve suggested margaritas, which were divine.

On Thursday evenings Lance Smith, the owner and wannabe rock star and crooner, hosts karaoke. He even has special lights.

After two margaritas and some encouragement from Steve, I did a duet with Lance. We sang “Peaceful Easy Feeling” by the Eagles. It was fun but I haven’t repeated my performance.
