“Katy Sue is next and will be singing ‘Crazy’ by Pasty Cline,” the DJ announced.
Butterflies fluttered in her stomach. They always did.
When was she going to be rid of these nervous feelings?
But, she got up from her bar stool and started making her way up to the stage.
She had to walk past that bar fly. He was a permanent fixture there and a creepy boar.
He grabbed her arm and gave her his yellow toothed smile. She cringed.
“Take it away Katy Sue,” the Dj said.
She put on the smile.
Katy Sue loved the stage.

Have you ever done Karaoke, Izzy? I have and the feeling you describe is spot-on! 🙂

No, Lorna, I haven’t done Karaoke but have been to many. I enjoy watching and seeing people who do. I can’t sing a note. I do at home as I toodle around the house but if anyone were to hear me they would hold their ears to ensure they didn’t go deaf. loll
I think the people sing Karaoke who aren’t that good but like to sing are brave. They place themselves in a very vulnerable spot. I suppose going outside of your comfort zone could develop confidence. 😄

Yes Issy, more please! I want to know about Katy Sue, she sounds fiery! 🙂

I’m left wondering about if there is a past between Katy Sue and the barfly … yet a sense of creepy.

Well, that’s a thought Frank. The challenge is only 100 words. The story is fiction but based on a friend who loves Karaoke. I think I’ll consider expanding the story. Thanks for the encouragement.
Happy Monday … !!!!
