You can never have too many altos.  They're the ones who can actually read
music.  :)  (Actually I am getting just a teensy bit annoyed with our church
choir director, who will go over everyone else's part in detail and then say
"okay altos, you know your part, let's go!")  Besides, they can double as
second sopranos.  We could get some really sweet harmonies going....

I wish I could play percussion!  I took guitar lessons in fourth grade and
wanted to switch to drums in fifth, but my parents insisted I stick with
guitar.  I think they just didn't want me practicing drums in the house.
Would it look really stupid for a thirty-year-old housewife to start taking
lessons, do you think? :)
