100 Words: Karaoke

We didn't have iPods or smart phones while I was growing up.  It was all about the radio, or the record player, for my eight year old self.  One of those portable record players resided in my room, and a Donny Osmond record was all I needed.  

As the needle began the revolution through the grooves of the vinyl, I waited for the scratchy sound of the music to begin.  Then I would sing at the top of my lungs, all about "puppy love", until my mother would suddenly yell that she had a headache. 

I made my own karaoke.
