BAD Posselq !!! (and son)

The Posselq found some of my songs on i tunes. When I say 'my songs' I don't mean songs that I have written - no - I mean songs that I have sung - and recorded. Now, I'm not a good singer but a couple of years ago I took some lessons with this lady who is called Nikki Lambourn - (you may remember this song - La Bassey recorded it last year - fab!!! Listen to the whole song on itunes - it's very very good) However, I soon realised that singing wasn't really my thing - and therefore stopped before anyone got hurt :)

NOBODY listens to my recordings - apart from my Mum who has them on a CD - and she always cries - that's how bad they are. I like to sing - as anyone who knows me will testify - but I am not good at it - not good at all.

Now, Posselq and Posselq's teenage son decided it WOULD BE FUNNY to ferret through my I tunes and then burn a CD of my songs and play them in the car - note - without asking permission or telling me.

So - here's the scene - four of us in the car - headed to nearby tack shop to buy Posselq's daughter a riding hat. Posselq's son hands me a CD and asks me nicely to 'pop it into the player'. Because I AM NICE I duly did as I was asked. The intro music comes on and it's the intro to James Blunt's "You're Beautiful". Now, I really can't sing and my version of this particular track sounds like two cats being strangled. Like a complete tit I said "I really like this song - in fact it's one that I used to sing".

Imagine my horror, humiliation and shame - when my reedy little voice start to whistle its way out of the car speakers......I WAS MORTIFIED!!!

Of course - everybody else is laughing hysterically - because it's so funny to take the rise out of a sad middle aged woman who used to enjoy the odd warble.

Poor Posselq has severe bruising to his upper left arm where I beat him in the car. 

It was very, very funny - but I don't think I can ever forgive them.

Revenge will be mine :)

  1. That is seriously funny. :-) Kudos to Posselq and spawn.

    Isn't it a bit self involved of you to have these songs on your ipod?
