A poet and I didn't even know it

I've never claimed poetry as one of my skills.

... but I don't have anything else constructive to say, so I thought I'd try my hand at a limerick.

Once, a boy loved to sing.
The bathtub made his voice ring.
His mom made a tape
So he couldn't escape
The reminder so embarrassing.

That's 30 seconds of your life you're never going to get back.

Still, that's a true story. My mom has a tape of me singing Christmas songs in the tub. I belted "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" for a full 20 minutes. I was fascinated with the way my voice sounded when my ears were underwater.

That was the second funniest tape recording I've ever heard. It came in a close second to the A-ha tape.
