What Happens In The Shower Should Not Stay In The Shower

Did you know…I can do a flawless impersonation of Dikembe Mutombo down to the finger wagging. Or that I can freestyle 2 minutes straight to almost any rap beat. Or that I can recite original poetry of the top of my head.
The truth is that you’ll never know any of that, because I have never carried it beyond the shower. It somehow goes down the drain every morning. I could blame it on life and a host of others things…but the truth is that I have never pushed myself to rap outside the shower or to perform poetry outside the shower or to add my Dikembe Mutombo voice impersonation to any of my speeches.
But my situation Is better than most. At least I have written some (emphasis on some) poetry, I have tried some rap karaoke and done several impersonations of other people (except Dikembe) on stage.
But so many others have not…they are too afraid of the world…scared about what the world would think about their shower talent. The thing is that you will never know how good you are until you take it out of the shower and that is the truth…So the next time you are in the shower, think about the songs you sing, the dance moves you make, the ideas you create…because there is something magical about being naked and wet, it liberates your thoughts and stimulates your creativity. In the shower you are invisible and powerful, but you only realize that if you take it out of the shower…
PS: This sketch was stimulated by my January 11th afternoon shower…luckily it did not go down the drain.
