Sing + Shower = Awesome (healthy vocal chords?)

I'm am a devout believer in singing in the shower...

As in, I do it all the time. However, as of now, I've always been somewhat timid about practicing my shower-singing tendencies.

Perhaps some of my timidity is from my reaction to a diologue re-enacted for me by my cousin Audrey-

It goes like this:

Audrey walks in to friend's house. Greets friend. Hears singing emitting from shower. Recognizes voice as that of friend's teenage brother.

"Lalala laaaaa la la laaaaa....."

We'll call friend's teenage brother, "Luke."

Friend (shouts): "Luke!!!"

Luke (sings): "Yeah? La la la laaaa..."

Friend: "Luke! You know, Audrey's here now!!!"

Luke: "La la la laaaaa... What?"

Friend: "Audrey is HERE NOW!"

Luke: (long silence.) Oh.

(another long silence).

Yes, well, anyway. What if one of MY friends came over while I was singing in the shower?

But after attending CMS, I've decided to sing unashamed.

Steamy shower air is great for vocal chords. And shower time, time that you can't avoid (or at least, shouldn't avoid) might as well be spent multitasking. It's a great time for vocal warmups.

So if you show up at my house and melodious, ethereal scales emitting from our bathroom, expect me to emerge and ask haughtily, "What are you doing for YOUR vocal chords?"

Ahh yes! I love to sing in the shower. Of course, that has nothing to do with the fact that our shower is at the back of the house. :)
