Just Whistle

You’d think that I’d be a better whistler. I definitely know how to wet mine. And that classic line from the Humphrey Bogart movie, “You know how to whistle, don’t you? You just put your lips together and blow”, makes it sound so easy.

I should be able to signal a cab from a block away even more so because one of my last moments in my mommy’s tummy, was spent listening to
“Sweet Georgia Brown”, the theme to The Harlem Globetrotters game we were attending. You know the song, no singing, just someone whistling to music.
In fact, I’m pretty sure that I was whistling along and that’s what caused my mom’s water to break and subsequently send her into labor, during the game. True story! We’ll, at least the part about my mom going into labor during the Globetrotter game. I actually whistle like I just ate a fistful of crackers. Whistler’s Mother, she is NOT!
