The quirk (in case you wanted to know)

If you didn't know, I am a musician-a singer to be exact and because of that, or some weird quirk in my brain, I never go a moment without a song in my head. Back in fifth grade during art class I had a song running around in my head...engine, engine, number nine, going down chicago line over and over and over. Someone said something funny and I distinctly remember blurting out Engine! instead of just laughing. A moment that I will *embarassingly* take with me the rest of my life.
Tonight I had a meeting at church...wanna know what the song was tonight?
Movin' on up! To the east side, to a DE-LUX apartment in the sky-y-y-y...why? You ask? I HAVE NO IDEA. Just another quirk I guess. I have also woken myself up singing-out loud-before. I swear. I even remember the song...from Madrigals, my senior year...God Bless the Master of this House...just in case you wanted to know.

Wait a minute! Make up your mind! Are you a musician or a singer? *heh heh*

I once woke up singing "I'm a Woman."

heehee, what your dad said...
Andy is always singing, too, I think. He always breaks out to some funky song (not that you said your songs were funky)that goes with our activities. An example is escaping me at the moment, though. Recently, we found out more than we needed to know about some lyrics. So keep on singin' sister!

This is not a peculiar-to-Marie quirk, as I walk around singing weirdo stuff all the time. Maddie sings weirdo stuff in a language only she can understand sometimes... yesterday I was reading a book to Gracie (well, singing it as it was a song book) and I noticed I was doing the Mama sway. Do you know what I'm talking about?

I guess I was unaware of the snarky musician vs. singer schism : )
