Samantha knew it was all wrong when the lights came up and the music started. She looked down at the microphone in her hand and sang the first line of the song barely audible. When she hit the chorus she started to get into it and really feel the rhythm. Her friends hid their faces and Samantha could have kicked herself for having that fifth shot of tequila. Sure it’s all fun and games until someone gets on stage and starts singing Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ in a honky-tonk karaoke bar. Now she had to really own the music. She picked it up an octave and started shaking her hips to the beat of the song. With a wink she pointed to her friends and sang directly to them. Perfect payback for the triple-dog-dare Kara had given her.
When she hit the final note the bar went wild, the crowd jumped to their feet and screamed, “More, more!” Samantha giggled and stepped down off the stage looking for her sixth shot of tequila.
