This May Have Its Advantages

I always thought that it would be cool to have a back-up singer follow me around all day.  I’d be all like “Do you have change for a fifty?” and my back-up singer would be all “Oooo, change for a fifty.”  Or I’d be like “I’ll have a chicken burrito” and my back-up singer would chime in, “Chicken burrito, yeah yeah yeah.”

I have just learned that the dream is close to being realized.

I’ve found a back-up singer.

Doo doot doo.  Back up singer.

  1. LOL! One of my favorite sayings is “The problem with life is that there is no background music.” (It’s below my profile pic on my blog.)…

    ‘Tis so true!

    Think about how much more interesting and dramatic things like the “yearly exam” would be with background vocals!

  2. I’d take it a step further. How much cooler would life be if it were like a musical and not only would you have back up singers but groups of random people who just happened to be around would sing along and break out into a tightly synced dance number as well! That’d be awesome.

  3. if I were going to do the backup singer thing, I’d have to have the Pips, like in the Geico commercial. Anyone else wouldn’t be worth the trouble.

    I don’t imagine “oooooh, scoop the cat litter” would make it a more pleasant task, however.

    You mean like this?

  5. That was awesome!

    I’m going to sing the rest of the day…

    “Oh dear hippie lawyer,
    may I get your signature,
    authorizing my raaaaaise!?!?!?!”

    *cue the choir*

    “Aaaaaamen!”

  6. I tend to explain myself in song to the dog and the cat on a regular basis.

    I am washing dishes
    Sophie’s sitting there
    NaNa kitty’s watching
    with a big mouth full of hair…”

  7. Have you ever seen “The Upside Down Show”? ‘Cause there’s an episode called “Airport” that contains a song about back up singers that you HAVE to see/hear. We have it saved on the DVR if you want to come by some time and watch it with J.J. It’s one of his favorites… Seriously.

  8. I would love to! But let me make sure I’m not coming down with the flu first. I would not want to give you what the Butcher has.
