Uninvited

“The Worst Karaoke Moment in History.”

Being the art advocate that I am, I fell off of the counter today attempting to assist an artist in hanging their work in a local location. It was a local, promiment bank, and I landed “boobs in his face” onto a young teller who never knew what hit him. It was then that I was reminded of what happened to me at age 42.

My friend invited me to a Karaoke “sing off” in Denver, Colorado. It was a “dive bar” but the grand prize was 300 bucks and I was broke at the time.I conceded to rent a costume and go to Denver with him to sing my lungs out and attempt to win the prize.

While on the floor, donning my 8 inch stilettos which lit up as I moved, I tripped. While holding the mic in hand, I fell through the back hanging foil curtains, through the exit door, and landed flat on my back. I kept singing though. I was on my back, legs spread wide, as I flipped out of the EXIT door while singing the Alanis Morissette song, “Uninvited.”

I’m sure that when the crowd remembers this moment, they still chuckle.Needless to say, I did not win the $300 dollar prize.

And, I was not invited back.
