Meatheads united

Tonight I decided to visit The Nelson for a little karaoke action. Lysa had something up her sleeve tonight - people would sing two songs in a row. My two were The Eagles' Take It To The Limit and Alison Moyet's That Ole Devil Called Love. The first song was a tester, to say the least, while the second one made me come alive.

As for the clientele - well.... meatheads. Beer-swilling, football-supporting, knuckle-dragging, microphone-banging meatheads. Roll on Saturday night, with its more manageable crowd.

As I left, the Irish woman sat at the bar tugged on my coat and told me to go back and sing another as I was "The only decent singer"!
