And the night ended with a song in a coffee shop

19 Sep

Thats just it.  I sang in a coffee shop tonight.  I’ve never done that before.

So Andrew and I went out to dinner with our good friends, Abe (NOTW designer) and Rowena Hernandez and their son.  We ended up in Coffee Depot in the Plaza on open mic night.

After a few singers, Abe decided it would be a good idea for me to do a song and wrote my name down on the list.  Reluctantly, I decided it was worth taking a chance and I borrowed a guitar.  I sang a song I had written for my husband for his birthday; “My Favorite Everything” (cause he’s my favorite).

It was spur of the moment and I was actually more nervous when I was finished.  Definately out of my comfort zone.  The owner/manager invited me back to every open mic night he knew of in Riverside.

New experience.  Not Bad.

    Guts! More than I’ve got.

    I would have told my good buddy Abe, “I’d sooner use this here fork to eat my own socks, than go sing a song up there.”

    Awesome.

    You’re so brave! I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time but I can never get the guts. Way to go!
