There Is Nothing Ironic About Show Choir!

As we watched Glee the other night The AG wondered aloud whether or not they followed me around with a camera when I was in High School and I just didn't know it. Take for instance the scene where the Glee Club leader tells Rachel that she "can't have every solo and be the star of every show."

Take it from me: Those are fightin' words.

And the example I will leave you with was tonight as I waited for Remi to get out of dance class; I am standing in the hall with about six other momma's when one of them says to me, "You look so familiar." I tell her that I grew up in this town but that I moved away for some time and had recently moved back. I told her I graduated from Hudson and she interrupts, "Oh, I think you graduated with my brother...weren't you his class president?"
"Uh, no."
(Getting excited) "Didn't you do 4-H or something like that?"
"Nope, not me."
(Now with much anticipation) "Oh, did you play basketball really good on the girls Varsity team?"
"What did you do?"
"I sang."
(And now with mucho disappointment)"Ohhhh yeah...Melissa Lee...that's right."

So, Kasey (one of my three true readers), to answer your question, this is what we're watching this season. You asked if I was watching the Biggest Loser, and the answer is "yes", because everyone knows Show Choir kids are, in fact, the biggest losers. And I was proud to be one.

Seriously. Y'all should have heard me bust out in some Gloria Estefan. Let's see if they can bring that back.

Didn't think so.

Have I overstated the fact that you and I were formed from the same mold? Glee, while irreverant at times, is just so much a reminder of the hardships of awkwardness from the teen years. While I don't want to go back there, I'm nostalgic for that time in my life. Strange dichotomy.

I am so obsessed with this show… (thanks to you).

It just moves me.

Kacey said...

I am so in love with this show!

Sarah Victoria said...

I looooove this show! and I totally agree with you. Those are fighting words!

I'm so torn about watching this show. I stinkin' love it. But, and this is a big BUT for me (no pun intended Melissa :-) )
Are we allowing or even encouraging the not so Christian story lines, because, hey, it's just a show. I turned it off last night when the young man made his confession at the locker. I just don't know what is the right thing to do. Any advice?

I am hoping that I am another one of your "true readers!"

We watched Glee for the first time, last week. I loved it. Hubby was not as sold on it. But what does he know? He was a jock, who laughed at us show choir kids. LOL!

Love that you got that response from the mom at dance class.
As always, thanks for sharing!!
