Bucket List #29: Sing karaoke (for real) and not care what anyone thinksPosted: February 14, 2013 | |
Guys, I hit a milestone on Tuesday night.
Not only did I cross off the first item EVER on my Bucket List, but I sang karaoke. REAL KARAOKE. Woah.
This is life-changing.
Tuesday was one of my teammate’s 21st birthday, so naturally we would be going out to celebrate. We went to a local bar, that, you guessed it, has karaoke on Tuesday nights. On an awesome side note, Tuesdays are also “flip night”–the bartender flips a coin when you order your drink and if you win the flip you get your drink half off. I won! Only once… but whatever.
Anyway, back to celebrating. Prior to Tuesday, I had never done real karaoke–I was too scared/nervous. let me clarify what I mean by real karaoke. Growing up, my best friend had a game for PlayStation2 called Karaoke Revolution and we would play it all the time. ALL THE TIME. But somehow I hardly think that singing I’ll Be by Edwin McCain on repeat counts as karaoke.
So… I sucked it up, faced my fear (with a little help from liquid courage–my second margarita) and did it. I wasn’t alone, thank god, but I did it. I sang karaoke and didn’t give a single fuck about what anyone thought.
Though my adoring fans kept requesting songs for me to perform, these were the ones I ended up choosing (in no particular order):
Rich Girl – Hall and Oates
Friends in Low Places – Garth Brooks
Bye Bye Bye – NSYNC
Something Like That – Tim McGraw
I had so much fun that my friends and I decided to do this more often. Let’s see if it pans out. Who knows, maybe you’ll see me on the next season of American Idol or The Voice.
