friday night, i stood huddled with my family around the community desktop
while ashley showed us susan boyle's britain's got talent audition.
i turned to james and said,
"next year, we're auditioning for american idol."
as soon as i finished my sentence, ashley whipped her head toward me
and started laughing so hard her face turned red and she stopped breathing.
i think i saw a tear or two escape her eye.
talk about the worst reality check ever.
i guess i'm more tone-deaf than i thought...
