“You Oughta Be in Musicals Christina Calloway!” That would be the title of my own Bizarro Charlie Brown special.
I was watching an episode of a cartoon from my childhood called “Pepper Ann,” where the title character wanted to shake up her routine so she auditioned for a school musical about detention, a place she knows all too well.
She fell off stage during the audition and had a dream which involved everyone singing, driving her nuts.
Well you can ask anyone in my office, family or my group of friends if I’m always singing. If you ask me a question that deserves a response with a line from a song, you bet your dollar I’m singing it back to you.
But instead of going crazy, unlike Pepper Ann’s dream, I feel I can drive others crazy with my singing.
But it actually helps me stay sane. Music has brought so much joy to my life, that singing is what I do to celebrate and to cope with hard times.
If my life was a musical it would incorporate happiness, sadness, tons of comedy (mostly coming from my own embarrassment) and even action like when I swerve from the flying tumbleweeds.
I mean, can you imagine me singing my questions for an interview? That would be awesome right? So if I’m a’singing at your door, congratulations, you’ve been cast in my show.
