LOL, anyone could get into the marching band, it was a little harder to qualify for the concert band although I don't recall anyone being turned down, not even tone-deaf me.

However, I was not allowed to sing in the chorus, now that must have been status. "Megan" and I would sit alone in an empty classroom while virtually everyone else went off to practice for chorus. She seemed to take pride in the fact she could not sing, it was the only thing she couldn't do. She was prom queen and valedictorian. I loved hanging out with her.

My mother was a professional singer and her father was a professional musician. I was drafted to be in the church children's choir. In the first practice the nun got red faced and started yelling at me to sing on tune. She thought I was doing it to get out of the choir.

Due to severe discipline from the church school my grandfather tested me and confirmed I was tone deaf. So was my father.

No. But I heard Col Mustard did it in the ballroom with a candlestick.

That's why I was a hybrid, the dreaded "band-jock". It meant we could date both cheerleaders and hottie band girls with no repercussions........

Only T-Al could endure that Trombone video. But I have to ask about the other clip--what the heck is playing on the tv behind tuba girl?

Bunny my man, now you've done it. I'm in love with Lisa, especially with her belly button.

This is going to be a difficult evening for me.
