When I’m home alone

15 Oct

Alright, I am about to air my dirty and embarrassing laundry.  What do I do when I am home alone…

I sing Broadway songs in front of the mirror.  Andrew will sometimes come home and ask me what I’ve been doing all evening.  Umm… well, when I feel like singing (like I did tonight), I will easily kill an hour + in front of the mirror.  Sometimes its the good stuff, like songs from WICKED or RENT, but then every once in a while, a little “Star Spangled Banner” or “I will Always Love You” sneaks in. 

You might be saying to yourself “Thats not embarrassing.  You’re a singer.”  But really, if you walked in on me, you would laugh your *@&  off.  I don’t just sing, I act.  All the little lines, motions, and what nots are all done in front of the mirror.  I am perfecting my skills for the day when I cross of one of my life goals which is to audition for a Broadway show.  Those close to me know that I am a secret closet actress.  How can you be both secret and in the closet you ask?  Thats how secret it is.  I am especially good at dying scenes. 

But I digress.  I just pray no one ever walks in on me. 

What is your embarrassing, “I only do it when I’m alone” thing?  I know you have one.

    Can you video it and post it to the blog so we can see for ourselves? That would be cool to see it before you are famous on Broadway!

    YOU are funny for that one. Hey at least you know the Broadway songs to sing them! hehe

    does acting a fool with Izaiah there count? he’s always around so i’m never alone…not even in the shower!! =0)

    my “oh my I hope no one sees this” thing is simulating doing a hoola hoop in front of the mirror (w/no shirt) to see if my tummy will ever go back to pre-baby size!

    I love this post! You are funny. And, I can’t wait to ask you to act like you are “dying”!

    I guess my well-kept secret would involve acting like a dog on my hands and knees and barking and panting while chasing my kids. Kills the knees, but it’s all for the kids…. 🙂

    I have to say that I would be embarrased if anyone walked in on my while I was having one of my emotional moments with music. I’m pretty dramatic too. I walk around and pretend like I’m singing with the best of the best in front of people I know and love. It’s pretty weird.

    I “secretly” love tear jerker shows, the cornier the better … 7th Heaven, Full House. Its not so secret esp when the girls come home and there I am on the couch wiping away tears and Uncle Jesse is on the TV with one of the kids. A great tear jerker that isnt corny is Extreme Makeover Home Edition, oh goodness! haha!

    Oh, dear Becca. I miss that fun-lovingness of you!! You bring such a smile to my face and heart. And I must admit, you, Byron Watkins (remember him?!), and my husband are the only people I know who can quote entire movies in character. We REALLY must get together!!!

    PS – I always knew you’d be a star 🙂 .
