Karaoke Night!

Southern Man doesn't get his kids this weekend, so he plans to hit the tax office as soon as he is done at his day job and work their every hour they're open until Sunday at five, when we'll close and scatter to our various Super Bowl parties. Business is warming up and we are fairly busy. And then at eight-ish gf calls - her brother is in town to spend the night for a weekend wrestling tournament, and dodoes Southern Man want to go out with them that night after the tourney winds down for the evening?

Well, sure he does.

So we ended up at a local dive called Don Quixotes - big, filled with smoke, and with a small stage at one end and a dj on the side. Now, Karaoke is not something that Southern Man has ever done before and wasn't quite sure how it would go but both gf and her brother were rarin' to go. They both got their turn faily quickly. Bro belted out a Hank Williams Jr. tune ("All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight") and gf followed with Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me." Both are talented singers and got plenty of applause. But they couldn't get me up there; Southern Man may occasionally join a medium-sized ensemble but he doesn't have much of a singing voice. Besides, he was still in his geeky jacket and tie from work. Besides that, the Karaoke books only came in two flavors - country and pop - and there wasn't that much in there that he knew anyway. But perhaps he will try it again someday. Bro wants us to go up to his hometown and try some of the places there, and I suppose we will some day.

So Southern Man finally fell into bed at three-ish with the alarm set for six. Tomorrow may prove to be a long, long day...
