Ear Plugs, anyone?

Last night, what I thought would be a nice dinner out with my colleagues turned into a tone-deaf, song fest at the local karaoke bar. When we first arrived, we were the only people in the place. Which was great for helping us get warmed up. I kicked my evening off with a little Britney "Oops, I Did it Again." Love that song. My coworkers, not a shy bunch, got up with songs like The Gambler, Should I Stay or Should I Go, and I'm a Barbie Girl.

Then the night really got interesting. There were several duets, including "Summer Love," and a time machine rendition of "Girlfriend," by Pebbles (um...I would like to say I was not the one singing that one, but I cannot say that truthfully). Then, despite my protests, my coworkers got up and did "American Pie." If ever a long, drawn out karaoke song there ever was, this was it.

I took that as my cue to leave. And, at 12.30am on a school night, I am sure glad I did!
