Music and Dancing

I've had another one of my Itunes shopping sprees. I simply love that their songs are just 99 cents!

Here's what I've been buying: (feel free to laugh... I'm weird and I know it!)
Scandalous by Mis-Teeq
Pon de Replay & SOS by Rihanna
Groove is in the Heart by Deee-Lite
Black Suits Comin' by Will Smith
Butterfly by Crazy Town
I'm Glad & Jenny from the Block by Jennifer Lopez
Dreams by The Cranberries
Wherever You Will Go by The Calling
Name by the Goo Goo Dolls and
She by Elvis Costello

So last night I was dancing outrageously in my office, listening to my new music and shaking my sizable booty. And it reminded of dancing in my childhood home.

I remembered high school summers when the only thing that was really important was having a great tan. I would sunbathe from 10am until 5pm wearing (God help me!) Johnson's baby oil (my poor skin!) and listen to my favorite tapes and the radio.

Now my parent's house was way out in the boondocks with no neighbors in sight. So sometimes, when I felt really brave, I was sunbathe without my top. And I would dance around.

One day I was in my kitchen making lunch (topless) before heading back out to sunbathe when one of my favorite songs came on. So I started dancing and singing up a storm. You know the kind where you pretend you are on stage and you hold a pretend mike to your mouth.

And I look out my window and there is a man up on our telephone pole working on the phone line. I shrieked and hit the floor. He blushed and skedattled down the pole.

So gang... get on up and dance. Shake your groove thing and sing with all your might.

But take it from me....pull down your shades first!

I remember that and I swear that the linemen still come and climb our pole in hopes of seeing you again. Mom
