This year while we were at the beach- our last night there, our neighbors brought out their kareoke machine! As we all know- Chet is quite a singer, so he went over there and sang a few songs.... 4 to be exact! Funny story and it's totally true!! The 1st song he sang was Piano Man by Billy Joel... which was a REAL winner with everyone. In fact, he had everyone out on the balcony of their houses every which way- and the cheers were off the hook! Anyways- he comes back over, and I was like good job! (then I made the remark- weren't you gonna serenade me?) This was said half jokingly(to try and give him a hint) So, then Arnie, Brandon and Chet all go back over to sing some more. Arnie sang Arms wide open for Kim, then Brandon sang Your Body is a Wonderland for Ashley, and Chet is next- and I'm like- cool! He's gonna sing to me (because he has never serenaded me ever in our 8 years of marriage and being together). Then Chet starts sining Red Hot Chili Peppers "Under the Bridge" and I was like what?? And some of my cousins came up to me and were like- are you sad that you are the only one that hasn't been sung too?? And I just laughed it off (but kind of disappointed inside) So....... Chet probably got the hint and he goes back over their for a 3rd song!! This time, he calls my name out- makes me stand up for everyone to see.... everyone starts clapping, and the music begins.... and it is Beautiful by Christina Aguilera.... then he immediatley tells the guy to stop the music because that is the wrong song... so the guy stops the music, they speak for a minute, and all of sudden he is singing "Hey Jude" and everyone on our balcony turns to me and is like- he is dedicating Hey Jude to you??? Is that like an inside thing? And I was like- no- and at this point I start crying- because everyone around me seems to be making it an even bigger deal then it is- and I just want to be serenaded!!! LOL!! :)
So, I start packing up to leave, since I have to make it back in time for church on Sunday... and I need something to take my mind off, me not being serenaded to. As I'm going up and down the stairs from the house to my car... I start to hear Chet singing his 4th song... and it is Drops of Jupiter, which is a little better, but still- I'm like it took him 4 trys to get it right?? Then he finishes and he comes over to me and is like- soo did I sing good. And I was like, yep! You did great! Goodjob! Everybody loved you! He sensed my "sadness" and then said- in the songbook, they only have each songtitle but not the artist on each CD and when he saw Beautiful, he just thought it was the James Blunt - Beautiful... and when Christina Aguilera's song came on... he was like- wrong beautiful and then the guy was like- just hurry and pick something else off this CD and he only new Hey Jude... so that is why Hey Jude was dedicated to me! LOL!
So- maybe it wasn't an inside joke that week, but from here on out- it will definitely be an inside joke, and I will be dedicating it to him the next chance I get:) Picture is of Chet singing Hey Jude:)
