This is pretty entertaining.
Today I'm home for lunch, and as usual per Wednesday @ noon, the Lincoln Rotary Club was meeting in Einsteins (the coffeeshop) downstairs. Now I've witnessed their meetings from afar before today, and they normally consist of these elements: a meal, a song, some speakers, and probably the pledge of allegiance or something like that.
Today I'd like to highlight the song element. First of all I have to point out that whenever any singing or loud events happen downstairs you can hear it pretty clearly in my apartment--especially in the bathroom. I happened to be in the bathroom today when they began singing loudly and clearly, "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad."
Mind you, this is a large group of older women and gentlemen, and they are singing a song that takes me back to 2nd grade Chorus class. Immediately I started laughing. And I guess I didn't even realize that this was the same song until they got to the part of:
"Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah...someone's in the kitchen I know-oh-oh-oh..."
You get the picture. And just when I thought it was over, they continued on to even the "fe-fi-fiddly-i-oh...fe-fi-fiddly-i-oh-oh-oh-oh..."
Was this just a dream? Or did I really hear this coming from an actual organized club of grown adults?
