Holiday Party

My company finally had our holiday party Saturday night. It's the first party since my divorce. I haven't dated at all in the six months since she filed.

In the last six months I've discovered Karaoke. I'm not great, but I'm not that bad either. My Karaoke song list on my iPod is up to 32 songs all of which I've sung in public at least six months.

I was in charge of the entertainment for the party. We decided to rent Karaoke equipment and run a Karaoke show.

What's scary about Karaoke with a small group (25) is that you might not have enough singers. In Karaoke, the audience is the entertainment.

So I decided to ask a female singer to come as my 'date'. In addition to finding a singer, I also wanted to make the statement that the 'old man isn't all the way over the hill'.

I've gotten to know this woman as a result of singing Karaoke over the last six months. She's 'drop dead gorgeous' and has a wonderful singing voice.

I asked her whether she'd come to the party with me and share the KJ (Karaoke Jockey) duties. To my amazement she agreed.

I'll use the word 'date' very loosely as we arrived and departed in our own cars and the extent of our personal contact was a couple of nice hugs at the end of the evening.

But that night is the high point of my last six months. Not only was it wonderful to pretend I was out on a date with a lovely woman, the party was a smashing success.

Maybe there is hope for this old man yet ... stay tuned, I'll let you know.
