ear bleeding and puberty  
I don't know who puberty is worse for. Teenage boys whose voices are changing or the people around the boys who have to listen to them attempt to sing and butcher every conceivable note (and a few that I'm pretty sure are weren't meant to be heard except by human ears).

K used to have such a pretty singing voice. Now when he sings I want to stick my crochet hook in my ears. I just told him: for the love of all that is holy, please, sign up for chorus this year in school and get voice lessons.

I just hope like heck they do offer chorus at this school. Mom had told me that they took out most of the 'art' programs in the county within the last few years. When she told me that I looked at her as if she had two heads even though I've known that a lot of schools do this to save money and focus on their sports teams.

*grabs ipod and heads for the kitchen to do dishes, ignoring the fact that most people would say that about my own singing*
