So I was thinking about ex-girlfriends recently, and was remembering one in particular, who used to sing to me. I don't mean she was in school for voice or was practicing or anything. We'd be sitting on the couch, she'd lean in, and start whisper-singing a song to me. I guess she thought it was sexy or some sh*t.
Anyway, how are you supposed to react? I mean, I'd have to turn to look at her, and then she's singing in my face. She didn't have bad breath, but I still don't like when someone is breathing/talking right in front of my nose; it's weird. And she wouldn't just sing like a hot little line, or a couple bars of a song. She'd sing the whole song. So then I'm sitting there, fake smile plastered to my face, wanting it to be over, not knowing what to do. Can she see me? Can't she see that I am not digging her poorly-voiced tunes? I wonder if she'd notice if I moved my eyes back to the TV screen. Should I take out my lighter and wave it back and forth? Oh god, I have to pee. Can I put her on hold and just go pee? "I'm sorry to interrupt your thrilling rendition of whatever top-40 love song garbage that is, but my bladder is about to explode." Too harsh? Is she still going? The second verse? Really? Two choruses and one verse just weren't enough? Maybe she thinks if she keeps going, I'll eventually get into it. Nod and smile. Nod and smile.
We were together for something like 5 months. I don't even know how. Why would anyone spend that amount of time with me and think that I would enjoy that, or know how to appropriately respond? And what is the appropriate response, anyhow?
I kind of feel bad blasting her for this, but it just seems so over-the-top ridiculous to me.
