We definitely didn’t call ourselves the “Glee Club” although I might have had more pride if we did. “Show Choir” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. Yes, there were certainly a few singing hotties, but nothing like Finn. We sang the Lion King and once Mariah Carey – not Lady GaGa or Journey. We wore the same costumes every performance with gold sequined tops and black skirts with hose and black heels – no theatricity. Most importantly my teacher was bald and not a studly Will Shuster.

I realize with this post I openly  admit to having seen the show, perhaps watching it several times. It’s worth the partial embaressment to me. Enjoying a show that sheds light, gleefully in fact, on a part of my high school experience I don’t often get to remember.

Today I’m grateful for Glee, online TV, and FB to connect me with my former show choir classmates.
