Allison Rhea blogs about a confusing musical experience and spring time in the Valley!

So, last weekend I went home to Cleveland to see my cousin star in her high school musical, "The Music Man".  She played the lead roll as Marian and did an amazing job!  I had never seen her act or sing before and she blew me away with both!  Now, I am also left very confused.  One of the more popular songs in the musical, "Shipoopi", puzzled me.  What exactly does shipoopi mean?

I consulted WTAP's in-house music man, Anthony Lima, (he was in the play as a child) and I think his explanation only added to my confusion. So, if anyone can offer an explanation...that would be great.

As I was traveling back to the Mid-Ohio Valley, down I-77, it was so nice to see all the trees budding!  I'm so excited for spring time which eventually leads to summer and I think summers in the Valley are the best!  There's so much to do and so many scenic places to visit...so I am very excited!

In closing, again, if anyone knows what "shipoopi" means, please leave a comment!
