Shoot the shit

Tonight I am going to karaoke with a bunch of strangers.

I tried to talk Barbara into going with me so I wouldn’t be all alone but she’s working.

So I’m left to my own devices.

This is a MeetUp event.

And I’m going because I think it’s important for me to get out and do things that I normally wouldn’t do.

Time to make more friends.

Hang out with interesting people.

Sing my head off with Pat Benatar.


It’s my standard karaoke performance.

That and “My Immortal” by Evanescence.

Which is CONSIDERABLY harder than “We Belong.”

It has been WAY TOO EASY for me to just hang out at home, watching TV, and relaxing with my boys.

I need to get out and mingle.

Shoot the shit.

You never know when you’re going to meet someone awesome.

But I’m pretty sure it’s not going to happen if I keep sitting on the couch in my living room watching reruns of NCIS.

So I’m going out.
