The lady in white

When I was in high school I was a part of a madrigal singing group. During the Christmas holidays our group sang at various places like country clubs and private parties. During one particular private party one guest must have had way too much holiday cheer. This particular lady was doing things like singing, dancing, as well as flirting heavily with one of our basses who was dressed in the armor outfit. "Oh you're cute" I believe she said once as she poked at his breastplate (which was plastic by the way).

I have no idea as to how long the evening lasted— but it probably seemed to some like it would never end. While changing out of our outfits, our noble knight came up with the following poem— which seems to describe the evening and her antics perfectly:

She's the lady in white
she's out of sight.

She sings
she flings.

She moves
she grooves.

Everybody stares
but she doesn't care.

She's the lady in white.

Heh ... good times. I'm sure I've sung and flung and moved and grooved in my life. As a matter of fact, I was voted 'most flirtatious' in highschool.

That bits worn off these days though!

okay, did we already know that you sing? i don't think so!

cute poem... there always seems to be at least one "lady in white" at every event.

I like it. I've seen women (and men) like that. Makes you want to stay sober, huh?

Those *were* great events, we always had good fun, and yes, I will confirm for y'all that this man can SING!

There's always one "cheer-full" person that gets the party started:) Look at what an impression she made!

Poor "lady in white" - she probably felt like a dirty old lady come the a.m.

Or maybe not.

There's always one.

I bet she felt very embarrassed the next morning!

Why do I get the sense that you were the noble knight? ;-)

WHAT is madrigal?? I don't all so what IS that?!

Fortunately/unfortunately I am a tenor and was too short to fit in the plastic armor suit.

For those who do not know— Madrigal singers sing songs from the middle ages and renaissance periods. There are probably a lot of Madrigal Dinners held around the holidays by colleges and the like— think of it like Medieval Times, but with more class.
