O Canada!!

Well, sometimes weird things happen.

This morning I guest-led the worship at Faith Covenant Church in Farmington Hills, MI – same church I had the concert at last night for Covenant Community Care. Great church, with an awesome name!! Okay, I confess, that’s the name of my church too. 🙂

Anyway, we left after services and headed for Toronto. I’m on the air tomorrow morning live on 100 Huntley Street, Canada’s longest running talk show.

We we got to the border, we had this enormous Canadian border guard, and he asked me where I was from and what I was going into Canada for. I told him I was doing a TV show and he asked if I was an actor.

Me: “No, I’m singing”

Him: “Hmmm. Well, you know we’re playing you guys tonight in the Olympics. Hockey.”

Me: “Yep, should be a good game. Hope we get to watch it when we get there.”

Him: “Well, I’m not letting you in until you sing O Canada.”

Me: “Ha ha! That’s funny.”

Him: “No, I’m serious.”

Uncomfortable pause. Big guy. Ohio girl who, let’s face it, only hears that song when the Olympics are on.

Me: “Um, Ohhhh, Canada!!! La, la, la, la, la, laaaahhh!!!!”

Him: “Good enough.”

O, Canada!!
