I said no, and that I was just sitting in my car, eating my lunch and singing along with a couple of songs, practicing.

He then said it was reported that I was very animated and seemingly not aware of my surroundings. I replied that was true, because when I sing along with a song I love, and I am really trying to do it well, I get into it, and so I close my eyes and throw my head back as required.

He then asked if I would be willing to do a breath test for alcohol. I said yes, no problem, and blew a big fat zero.

He then asked if I had any other drugs and/or alcohol in the car. I said I had two prescribed medications in my bag, but otherwise no.

He didn't seem interested in that and told me I could go, and went back to his car.

Well, that's a new one. I mean, to be fair, I really enjoy singing, and sometimes I am totally into it...but that's just me, not intoxicants.

After he left, I took my Dexedrine.

The songs were Adele's "Skyfall" and "Hello."

Oh well, time for grocery shopping. Saturday afternoons...sigh.


WTF,

Okay so since when was singing a crime?

I'm completely tuneless when singing so I never sing in public
