The Shower Singer

shower

Dad’s in the shower.

“Dad’s a good singer, isn’t he Mom?”

“Yes, he is a very good singer.”

“Better than you?”

“Oh, yes, I can’t sing at all.”

“He really should sing on TV, shouldn’t he Mom?”

“Yes, he should.”

“But he doesn’t sing the songs right, does he Mom?”

From the shower we hear Dad’s melodious tones. “Puff, the magic dragon, lives by the sea and wallows in the sand box, playing with you and me.”

“Nope. He can never remember the words so he makes them up as he goes along.”

“We should buy him a songbook. One of those plastic ones we saw in the store.”

“Then he would know the words and finish the songs and we could have our showers.”

song bookDad’s in the shower, songbook in hand. We hear his melodious tones. “Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.”

“Dad’s a good singer, isn’t he Mom?”

“Yes, he is a very good singer.”

“Better than you?”

“Oh, yes, I can’t sing at all.”

“He really should sing on TV, shouldn’t he Mom?”

“Yes, he should.”

“I think we have to take the songbook away from him, Mom.”

“Why?”

“He’s in the shower singing every word. It takes him forever to finish and we need our turn to shower.”

  1. Clever and funny. I had a similar experience at my former residence where the occupant on the ground floor had to share one bathroom. Then, people would have to wake up early to bath or join the queue.
