When Thomas and I met, we were swing dancing like it was a part time job - 15+ hours a week. And it was awesome! Somewhere along the road, though, we turned into boring... err... "responsible"... adults. I had health problems, he got a full time job with an investment firm, then I got a business that grew much faster than my social life could handle. We haven't exactly gone dancing much over the last few years... But a couple months ago we vowed to be fun people again! Yay! Discovered a dueling piano bar in Salt Lake called Keys on Main. As long as the crowd doesn't get too rowdy, it is an awesome venue. And better yet, they have karaoke on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Some nights it's a lot of drunk people singing and they might have beautiful voices, but it's hard to tell because they're a little out of control. Sometimes they get great talent on stage! This night, one of the best songs was definitely Thomas's "Come Together" by the Beatles. Every girl (and guy! Might have picked up a few admirers) in the room had eyes on him.
Holli and David (remember them? We did their wedding a while back, then family photos) also went with us. Let me know if anyone else wants to go next time, the more the merrier!
And I look like a crazy person in this photo below, but my mouth is making the shape for the beginning of the word "Love." When I was a little kid, we used to blast my mom's CD (or maybe it was a tape back then, I'm not sure!) to Linda Ronstadt's "It's so Easy to Fall in Love" and sing it at the top of our lungs. What I didn't remember when I requested this song at karaoke is that the reason we knew that song so well as kids is because it was so darn repetitive. I think I must've sang the phrase "It's so easy" 100 times in the song! So they teased me a little bit when I sat back down - "How easy is it to fall in love?" but it's all in fun. That's what karaoke is about, isn't it?
"Thank you very much, we'll be here all week"
