A bored Ditz who can bear?
There I was at choir immersed in my book when I became aware of an odd quality to the sound emanating from the choir. I listened more carefully. It sounded like there were 3 or 4 different keys being attempted with the bulk of the choir waffling round in total confusion. Not a good sound!
I asked Ditz about it in the car going home.
'Oh, that,' said my Ditz casually. 'That was a set up.'
A set up? A set up! Who's setting up who here? Turns out that there is a pre~arranged signal that causes a number of the better musicians to change keys ~ but they all sing in a different key. This is enough to ensure most of the choir becomes quickly lost. The number of kids who lack confidence that they are singing the right thing is mind boggling. All Ditz has to do is drop out for a note or two & the others singing her part drop out too because they've been following & relying on her. Ditz does it just for fun. *sigh*
'So which bright bunny dreamt this up?' I enquired. Need I have asked?
'Well, Boy Soprano & I had nothing to do between AbbaMania performances,' Ditz defended herself. Yikes! Thankfully Alison has a sense of humour. She will need it if those two team up together any more.
