Mr. Karaoke

I have come a long way since first going to karaoke at Applebees. I used to be so shy about singing that I wouldn't get up. Then I finally went up in a group for the first time. I then realized that I had nothing to be shy about because I am so comfortable singing on a stage (I mean, I sang solo in front of 2,000 people at my high school graduation. Why should I be afraid now) . I started getting up more and more the more we went. Especially when I started going with a group where other people would get up every time too... like Josh and James (who are SO funny). Now apparently I will get up and sing with complete strangers... along with by myself. We have started a great tradition. "The best day of every other week" as Dave puts it (because we go every other Tuesday... don't want too much of a good thing). Well tonight was "other Tuesday".

I needed karaoke tonight. Work was stressful and I wasn't in the best of moods. I hate it when I get that way. Karaoke night is the best solution, because it makes you forget about everything else going on and you just laugh and sing along to karaoke. It worked. As soon as Megan and I got up and sang "Heaven is a place on Earth" I instantly felt better. Tonight was the most people we have ever had at karaoke. The waiter almost couldn't handle it. Most of the people with our group... I had no idea who they were. Mostly guys too. I guess guys love karaoke. Or maybe they love the half off appetizers. Anywho, one of the guys there that I didn't know was being flirty with me across the table. People were asking him if he was going to sing. To make a long story short, I didn't know this guy at all and we ended up singing a duet together. Not just any duet. Endless Love. I don't want to be premature here and say it was love at first sight, but people did tell me after that they were convinced of our chemistry on stage. I'm sure that most people at Applebees had no idea that we had just met.

The performance was awful and magical at the same time. See for your self.

You think there is a future for me and Mr. Karaoke? He told me he would come back and we would try this song again, but maybe we should try another song.

Hilarious, and.. hot?
I love the part where someone says "Tracy has a good voice" in the middle of when you are singing.
If you guys end up getting married, this would be a hilarious "how we met" story. Ha!
