Hidden Talent

If you know me on a public level you would describe me as reserved, quiet, maybe a little shy. Even bloggin' about my life has been a struggle because I am so introverted. My close friends see a more humorous side. Well the other night, deep in our basement I discovered my inner rock star!

I walked in the video game room where my son was cranking away on his "guitar." I loved the song he was playing and started humming along. He stopped and turned to me and asked Mom do you want to sing, it has a microphone. Usually I wouldn't never sing in front of any one--ever! But I had just finished a beer and thought what the heck.

What a blast, I was belting them out and my kids were getting a kick out of it. The song selection went from "Spoonman" to "One Way or Another" to "American Woman" to "Give it Away" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Some how the computer can hear you singing and grades you on it --I was getting all A's!

After and hour, I was hoarse and laughing, what a great way to blow off steam and I think I impressed the kids with my knowledge of rock!
