Stuff in My Drawers Day: Choir Sketch

This picture was drawn sometime in the late 1980s, at the United Methodist Church on Washington Street in Alexandria.

My parents were regular members of various choirs that practiced on Tuesday evenings. In the awkward period where we were too old for babysitters but too young to stay home alone, we would often be forced to tag along to practice sessions and play quietly in the pews.

After getting yelled at for running around various churches and disrespecting their sacred nature, we would calm down and read books or draw pictures (this was a few brief months before we got our first 8-bit Gameboy). I was probably in 4th or 5th grade when I captured this choir practice on paper. Apparently, they were performing something by Mozart. I also like my attention to detail in showing the chubby guy sitting in front sipping on a Big Gulp.

I'm sure it's been renovated many times in the ensuing 30 years, but a recent picture of the church shows marked similarities to my childhood sketch:
