The guy sitting next to me poked me.
“I don’t want to join choir.”
“No, we get out of 7th period, sign up and the goof off the rest of the time. Just drop the class during summer before we get our schedules.”
Hey, not a bad idea. I never missed a chance to goof off and quite frankly was very impressed at how quickly this guy could come up with a “plan.” I don’t remember which federal penitentiary he’s in now.
Well, flash forward to the week before high school starts and I get my schedule. CRAP !!! I didn’t drop the class!!
Well, first day of school I make a beeline to the Vice Principal’s office and I tell him that I don’t want this class. He said “Fine”, and handed me a form and said, “Have the choir director sign this and we’ll get you another 1st period class.”
So off I bounded with my get out of jail free card up the stairs to the choir room and when I entered: The room was full of high school WOMEN, not Jr. high girls, WOMEN!!!!
Holy Crap !!! Even with the accelerating loss of blood to my brain I was able to do the quick math and figured the chick to dude ratio was about 8 to 1. WOW!!!
I crumpled up my transfer sheet, tossed it in the garbage and took my place on the riser.
As an uber insecure, painfully extreme introvert, choir was heaven for me!! It forced be to be around WOMEN and to interact wit them and I had a lot of opportunities that I otherwise would not have had if I wasn’t in choir. It was my sophomore year in choir that I met my first girlfriend. If I hadn’t been in choir and if she hadn’t been so forward, I probably wouldn’t have had a girlfriend for many more years!
My first girlfriend was a redhead and that was something that has had a lasting affect on me.
I both thank her and curse her.
I have been blogging since 11/12/2011.
Not bragging, nothing really spectacular or special.
But, it’s funny to look at how many people start blogs and then quit !!
I am no one special and probably don’t have anything remarkable to say and quite frankly, I am the world’s least interesting person. That’s why I was amazed and filled with awe when I saw that people read what I posted, “liked” and even commented !!
There was a time maybe five years ago when I posted more often and had a good sized audience of regulars. I’d like to post more, but even just writing a simple post every day or so takes a fair amount of “sit-down-and-do-it” time. And also quite frankly, I’m not confident that I really have something original and interesting to post without doing what every one else is doing. I have a lot of respect for both professional bloggers and amateur bloggers that can put out quality on a regular basis.
OK, there is a point to this and the title of this post.
I have a Youtube account and post my videos there and I post videos there that I use for comments on other blogs:
Scroll down and find my reply.
Now, the funny thing is that video got 1500 views on the first 3 days and currently has 2500 views after 6 days !! Now, 2500 views on Youtube is not impressive except that it is for my account !!!!
Back to my blog.
There are several posts that I have done that get hits/views almost daily:
So, how many creepy guys worldwide (I get hits from 6 continents) peruse WordPress looking for possible soft core porn?? (HINT it’s real easy to find porn anywhere on the internet easier !!)
So, with no further ado, I am posting that video here with the blog post title, just to see how many views this post gets!!
No, not that God awful 1970’s sitcom:
A young Valerie Bertinelli was quite the treat to watch, but the Bonnie Franklin character almost ruined redheads for me.
No, instead I took a photo with my cell phone every day when I got to work.
Not an original idea as many, many, many people have done similar projects.
