Narcissus' Echo

Thoughts, tears, rants, ruminations, hopes, fears, love(s), and prayers of just another being passing through this wracked sphere...

Flub. Repeat. Repeat.

Well, last night's mass was a trip. One after another, things went wrong.

First, on the 3rd song, the choral director missed his cue from the musicians; not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times. Then, in the following song, one of the lead singers anticipated her cue and started a beat ahead of the rest.

Next, the officiating priest decided ad hoc to do away with a song*. Thankfully, our choral director figured that out and saved us from starting off in the wrong song.

Then, in one of the songs, I found out why eating a bowl full of chips and salsa, 5 pieces of chicken from El Pollo Loco, a serving of spanish rice, 2 servings of vegetables, 3 corn tortillas, and 1 liter of Coke is a bad idea 90 minutes before performance.

I.e. I burped and the mic picked up part of it


* The song omitted was John D. Baker's, "Litany of the Saints":

Which was just as well anyway, given Murphy's presence last night, it just might have very well ruined my pleasant memories of singing the song.

Here's hoping that Murphy won't show up for mass again, for a long, long time.

That's why I fast before singing. One time of being overstuffed and singing is enough to put me off.
