Normally, I don't watch television. I'd rather use my free time to read or write. Unfortunately, I'm addicted to American Idol. Lo and behold, this season's competition begins this evening. Every year I resent being drawn away from my favorite pasttimes, but every year I find myself glued to the television for more hours per week than I want to admit.
I suppose I could take my laptop with me to the family room which would allow me to make positive use of the excessive commercial breaks. I normally never sit through commercials. I jump up and rush to brush my teeth, wash my face, pick out my wardrobe for the next day, pack my workout clothes and other such necessities. It's amazing what can be done during lulls in the show.
I'd like to be a contestant on American Idol, but I hesitate. I only have one song that I can sing without emptying a room. I can belt out Paper Roses quite brilliantly (well, maybe not that well) with Lon as my captive audience, that is, as long as he has a cold Miller in his hand and a few empty bottles strewn beside his chair.
What would you sing if you were auditioning for American Idol? Or, is your dream to be a judge on the show?
Of course, to be honest with you, I wouldn't go on American Idol for anything, even if I could sing.
