FFfAW – She Can’t Sing

My mother thinks she can sing. My dad plays the piano while she “sings.” I have to close my ears. My dad told me to stop doing that because it will upset mother.

My dad placates to her and expects me to do the same thing. We have to make mother think she can sing.

She tells us when she gets good enough she is going to try and find a job as a singer.

Let's hope she will finally get good enough. Until then, I am wearing ear plugs!

  1. Poor long-suffering dad and daughter! She’ll be like those people who turn up in the early rounds on “X Factor” because their family has told them their singing is lovely, even though they’re tone deaf πŸ™‚

  2. We’d all love to be great singers. Having said that, some of the music that is successful these days doesn’t need a great singer, so there’s hope for us all! Good fun PJ.

  3. I think you have a very wise father and beautiful souled mother and you are priceless joy indeed for this lovely story. the simplicity garbs at my heart.

  4. Let’s hope the mom doesn’t spot the earplugs! There is nothing worse than having to suffer through someone who thinks they can sing well.

  5. This was really funny PJ. Terrible singing, ugh poor kids and Dad. You would gave to deafen yourself somehow. A voice coach would probably help I think, but I do know peooldand it’s true, whatever they do, they can’t sing, it’s more like a cat dying lol. Lovely story and picture to choose last week πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
