1. I once worked at City Hall in Chicago investigating voter fraud.
for two weeks during spring break in college, I worked at City Hall. I was given a box of voter registration cards and had to call all the people at home because they were suspected of voter fraud--it's Chicago, so they were most likely dead. Odd that no one was at home.
2. I once played a recorder duet with a member of the Chicago Chamber Orchestra--Christmas carols
I went to a Christmas party with my sister that was hosted by a CCO recorder player. We ran through all of the familiar carols while everyone else sang. Very fun.
3. I sing alto in the church choir.
Dive got it right. I used to sing in the choir, but I quit years ago. I like to sing for fun when no one is around, but I don't fancy singing in groups.
4. My right ear is pierced with three holes.
Yep, three on the right and two on the left.
5. I can't whistle.
Seems to be biologically impossible and has been a handicap on occasion when my summer community band performs numbers that call for group whistling.
