Barbershop Quartet Competition

By Beth Beutler
1     My name is Mary. Whenever I visit my friend Barbara in New York City, I never know what she will have cooked up for us to do together. Barbara and I have been close for years. While we share many of the same interests, we also enjoy diverse activities. I live in the country, and Barbara has always loved living in the big city. Each summer, she comes to spend a week with me, and I go to spend a week with her. Right now, it's my turn to be in the Big Apple.
 
2     "Wait until you see what I have planned for us tonight," Barbara said excitedly while she dished out some of the Chinese takeout she had ordered for lunch. (Barbara doesn't cook much.) I shifted in my chair, pulling it closer to the table and poured myself some unsweetened tea from the pitcher on the table.
 
3     "I hope it is better than that silly play we went to last year," I said with a grin.
 
4     Barbara rolled her eyes. "That was pretty ridiculous, wasn't it?"
 
5     "You could say that," I replied, taking a bite of my moo goo gai pan.
 
6     "No, this time we are doing something a little more down-to-earth. I'm taking you to see a barbershop quartet competition."
 
7     I swallowed my food in silence. A barbershop quartet competition? Didn't these quartets sing old-fashioned songs, and weren't they made up of mostly old people?
 
8     "I know what you are thinking," Barbara said.
 
9     "What's that?" I said innocently.
