Went to choir practice last night, here are a few notes….Ha, get it? Notes? Musical notes? Ahem..:
– The Cackler is the same. Last week my friend actually asked her if she could switch seats so that she, my friend, could sit next to me. The Cackler seemed a little huffy about it, but just went with it. Unfortunately, the seating arrangement was back to the original this time around. Next time, and I know I’ve said this before, I’m gonna have to see if I can switch seats. Get there earlier or something.
– I told you that our choir director had a skiing accident and suffered a concussion, right? He’s fine. But then last night he told us, and showed us that he had a splint on his ankle because he twisted or sprained it while playing baseball with his son. Then later on during practice he almost fell off the stool he was sitting on. I am a bit fearful of him directing us on stage in May. He almost fell off during rehearsal last time. The Cackler spoke up (way up) and shouted, “WE NEED TO COVER EVERYTHING WITH BUBBLEWRAP! *CACKLE*!!” I have to painfully admit it was a funny idea. It probably would’ve been funnier coming out of someone else’s mouth, though.
– We practiced songs from “The Lion King”, which are a little trickier than what we first perceived. Our director questioned the complexity of the one song, and one of my other friends spoke up and said, “Well you have to remember this was sung by a bunch of animals.” Then someone else replied, “What do you expect from a pride of lions?” Yup, lions can be pretty complex and wily with their music. It’s a fact.
