Context Clues

Friday, 21 December 2007

I try so hard to support the impression I’d like to give people — and that is

I am MUCH smarter than I look.

Unfortunately, my innate ditziness sabotages that effort.

Case-in-point:

I had a fabulous voice lesson today. Some lessons are great because a new technique is learned or a different part of the vocal range is found. In my case, some lessons are great when my teacher and I “talk shop.” He is a very learned and faithful Christian with a healthy respect for Judaism. I so enjoy our chats and learn much from him. He was sharing with me today his approach to the Christmas service (he is the Director of Music at his church) and how he likes to select pieces that are based on lesser-known texts. He mentioned some passages which were new to me such as the story of Anna and the story of a noun pronounced sih-mee-uhn.

And it wasn’t until he sent me the proof text that my mistaken rendering was corrected.

It turns out that there were no monkeys in attendance at Yussele’s bris. Simeon. Not simian.

Oops!
