Faithful readers may recall Mickey Dee’s, (or this might help) where our sister-in-law Melissa worked her karaoke magic. She’s moved the show to a new place called Five O’Clock Somewhere, where there’s now a world of fun every Thursday night. This week we joined in. We can’t really recreate the experience, but you can have a taste.
As an aside, an impressive stat. Number of times Melissa (Hunt) was asked to dance by strangers: 2. The first was a guy who asked Uncle Warren who she was. Warren’s answer: “My nephew’s wife.” Guy #1 never made it all the way to Melissa. #2 was a gentleman named Eric, who was inquiring whether Melissa could dance and use the video camera at the same time.
Melissa: What kind of dancing did you have in mind?
Eric: I don’t know. Slow dancing?
Melissa: You’ll have to talk to my husband about that (indicating Jake).
Eric: That’s your husband?
Eric: Will he hit me?
Melissa: Probably not, but I don’t think he’ll let me dance with you.
Eric did come over to speak to me, and was very polite, despite having perhaps had one too many. He asked me the same question: whether Melissa could dance and use the camera at the same time.
Jake: I’m not sure. Who did you want her to dance with?
Eric: Well, it could be me or you.
Jake: Well, she might be able to do that, but I don’t want her to dance with you.
Eric might have been disappointed, but I was able to introduce him to the karaoke DJ (Melissa) as well as the bouncer (Andrew), so that was a pretty nice consolation prize.
Sorry you can’t all be in our family. But the new place is a little bigger, so maybe you can come next time.
