A couple of weeks ago a lady in church asked me to do a musical number on the first Sunday in December. Something Christmasy.
It should be noted that I don't really have much musical talent. I used to play some instruments in high school, but I'm pretty sure that the saxophone is not allowed in church buildings. Maybe that's just the chapel, I'm not sure. I sing a very sad alto part, but only if I have someone to follow. This is what I get for knowing how to lead music, I suppose.
So it's supposed to be a spiritual Christmas number. That shoots down one of my only talents, and that's humor. I could re-write the 12 days of Christmas and make everyone laugh . . . but I'm sure that's not what she's going for.
What to do? I called my oldest sister and asked her. She had a couple of good suggestions. However, I'm still not sure what to to/sing/whatever. Last year I directed all of the hymns for the Christmas program for Sunday School. Can't we stick with that again?
Anyone have any ideas? I don't play the piano (one finger only) very well, my instrument is banned, I do not sing solos and my only other talent is humor. How to make the ladies cry? Besides my singing, that is.
