My first brush with Show Business


Someone asked me the other day when did I first become interested in Drama and all things jazz hands. I cast my mind back as far as I could.
The problem I had then which I still have now is that....I can't sing! So I learned at a very early age the art of miming. I also had my first crush when I fell in love with Little Jimmy Osmond!
Donny was far too old for me.
So I do remember being hauled out in front of a crowd in Granny Keena's kitchen. I stood in front of them and with a hairbrush in my hand I mimed along to this song.

The sound of their tumultuous applause rang in my ears and from that moment on I was hooked.

I haven't heard this song in decades but do you know what?
 I still remember every single word.
