When did you last sing out loud?

This is a tough one, not because it’s a rarity, I do it all the time and often without realizing I’m doing it. The last deliberate singing was a few days ago when I quietly sang Drive Me Wild by Vanity 6 after a failed attempt at donating blood – poor lighting, bad stick, digging around in my vein equaled an over stimulated vagus nerve.

Ugh right?! Let me explain, when I was 12 or 13 I spent a lot of time in the hospital have blood drawn, which not only hurts but it also makes me pretty woozy. I got into the habit of reciting poems and songs to distract myself. Vanity 6’s album conveniently came out around this time and happened to have fairly easy lyrics and to this day it’s one of the songs that pops into my head whenever I need to check out for a little bit.

The brain is an amazing thing, as well as the vagus nerve but in a ‘Geesh, why me?!’ kinda way.
