On Sunday Taylor Swift surprised a fan by showing up unannounced to her bridal shower in Columbus, Ohio. She found the invitation while going through fan mail. “I had no idea it was going to happen,” the bride Gena Gabrielle said on the “Today” show. “[Taylor] said she planned it with her management and her mom. She said it was all worth it because my face was priceless.”
I would like to take this opportunity to ask Barry Manilow if he would come to my Easter brunch on Sunday.
I know it is short notice, but a girl can dream. Here’s what he needs to know. I will have mayo-less deviled eggs, a salad, and whatever my mother-in-law picks up from the Honeybaked Ham store in Tustin. In other words, it’s legit. I am prepared to throw in some brownies too.
Yes, I know he’s Jewish. But I want to celebrate the resurrection of Christ the right way, and to me that’s by rollerskating to Can’t Smile Without You and Could It Be Magic in my driveway. I want to close out on a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance by listening to him replace Mandy with Katie while I sip champagne and cry softly beside the fireplace.
“Can someone explain why Barry Manilow is in our backyard hiding eggs,” my husband might ask. You know why? Because he is one of America’s vocal treasures.
What do you say, Barry? A little Copacabana in my front yard while my neighbors drive by? The two of us singing Ready To Take a Chance Again to my extended family? A little I Write The Songs as you help me put my kids to bed?
How do we make this happen?
