Unfortunately, there was only one microphone. Should I put it with my voice? Or the music?
I chose my voice.
Imagine a spiral-permed, white girl trying to rap on the school gymnasium floor in front of multi-hundred students all staring down, open-mouthed from the bleachers. They couldn't hear any music past the first row of kids - but they could all hear ME loud and clear...
Maggie... Vote for Maggie!
Come on! Come on!
Maggie... Vote for Maggie...!
It wasn't a pretty sight.
In my head, I had imagined the entire student body standing up and clapping along...
In reality, there was shocked silence... and a few laughs...
And, needless to say, I didn't win that vice-presidential election.
But I did better than the girl who played the piccolo for her speech!
I'm just thankful that there isn't a video record saved out there in cyberspace!!
