      This one falls into the �sometimes, good things happen to good people�
      category:

      I was driving my car in Redwood City, CA, and noticed the motorcycle
      cop following me. I checked my speed, and continued on. After two
      blocks, I noticed his red and blue lights were flashing, so I pulled
      over, thinking �What did I do!?� I lowered my window.

      He stopped the bike beside me, and I asked, �Is there something wrong?�
      He looked sternly at me and said, �Do you sing �a cappella�?� I was
      floored, and, momentarily, speechless. I decided that I could be a
      martyr for the art-form, so I answered �Yes, I do!�

      He continued, �I noticed your license plate frame, saying �Peninsula
      Harmony Chorus � Building Harmony through Harmony,� and thought you
      might be a singer. Then I noticed your license itself, �CMPEAUZ,� and
      knew that I had to stop and talk to you. You see, my son is very much
      into a cappella and is graduating from high-school next year. He�s been
      singing in a quartet since jr. high, and took me to the Harmony Sweeps
      this year � What a show! I�m buying tickets every year from now on! -
      Well, he wants to continue singing a cappella, and is looking for a
      chorus to sing with after high school.�

      I assured him that his son would be more than welcome to come and
      �check us out,� and gave him my Chorus business card. I also suggested
      that �dad� come along with his son for the evening.

      He smiled, fired up his bike, said �Well, that might happen. Thanks for
      the invite.� and took off down the road.

      As my heart-rate returned to normal, I thought, "This is one for the
      history books!" =8-)
