I probably shouldn't confess to this, but the passing of Andy Griffith brought back memories of one of my first "comedic" performances. I was fascinated with Andy Griffith's recording of What It Was Was Football!
I listened to it until I had memorized it. (It can still recite a good portion of it from memory).
Then- what to do
with it. I decided to "take it on the road", and along with a friend- went to various nursing homes in the community to "perform!"
For me, a lesson in performance, as well as one of my first lessons in community service. The "ham" in me enjoyed making folks laugh. The "heart" in me enjoyed the fact i was doing something that brightened someone else's day.
I'll never know for sure who was laughing with me
and who was laughing at
me, but it makes no difference. I enjoyed it then- and I enjoy the memory now.
I think YOU would enjoy it, too. Not MY version, of course, but Andy Griffith's original. Check it out! Just click on the link!What it was, was Football
