Hallelujah!

Do you think you have to audition for those heavenly angel choirs? Because I'm thinking it would be a great idea for the earthly variety...

Thank goodness, fudge covereth a multitude of sin(ger)s.

December 20:

The ward choir presented its Christmas program today, in much the same way that a ruptured appendix presents itself.

You get extra fudge if you didn't pray for a meteor to hurtle in from space and take out the one soprano who is so convinced the choir could not survive without her she sings everyone else's parts, loudly and viciously enough to alert animal control, and in the key of "teeth grinding major".

Yup, there is always someone who loves to "help" the other parts in a ward choir. Have you ever noticed it is mostly women? In a neighboring ward to ours there is a tenor who is a fantastic musician, who also is the music dept at BYU, and he loves to help out the sopranos. Hello! Sopranos are THE LAST part to share the spotlight.

pa I am an alto.

DeNae, you're killin' me. I had to read this one to my hubby...former bishop.
He did a double-eye rolloever and we commenced to discuss that said ward choir soprano in our very ward. I'm sure she outdoes yours.
Pass the fudge.

My husband and I LOVED the silent monks. Ah, man! That was great!!!
I definitely think we should implement that in our ward choir. =]

P.S. Made your fudge today and immediately praised the Lord God. I believe!

Our program had some hits and misses also...

I actually had to CLOSE my eyes and NOT look at her this year. Not only was she clearly making sure every part was covered, but her bouncing in time and animated facial expressions were giving me the giggles. Combine that with the lortab I took before church and it was a downright amusing meeting.

Out of everyone that regularly participates in our ward choir, today, the only ones that showed up were 6 sopranos of varying levels of ability, an off-key alto and three basses.

I can only imagine how we sounded to the congregation. I'm the only one that can consistently hold a key. Which is a little scary.

Amen, sister. I just close my eyes and go to my happy place (which coincidentally has fudge).

I'll raise your soprano with an alto who is CERTAIN that the entire ward and city could not function without her and her 6 boys and 2 daughters that bellow like tone deaf burros in heat.......

AURGH!!! I lost control and THREW my fudge at them..

There's that one person in every choir-your daily thoughts have been greatly entertaining-cause your saying what everyone else says to themselves. Love it!!

Does she read your blog, perchance?

I knew a woman who woke sleeping babies with her high, LOUD notes. She woke me too and I snorted.
