Well, I’ve reached the point of the shut-in where I’m breaking into spontaneous song. ESPECIALLY if my son is playing video games! There is just something about a teen concentrating ferociously on a screen that brings out the jazz hands in me.
Me (dancing in front of the screen): Hey, whatcha doing? Am I BOTHERING you?
Chance: Mom! Stop it! I’ve got to kill the thing at the time in the place for the team!
Muted voice from his headphones: Tell your mom you like big butts!
Chance: Shut up! I’m not telling my mom that!
Me: Ha! You like big butts! JAZZ HANDS!
I know I’m not the only one breaking out the tunes. I have to say it is pretty refreshing to see people letting their goofy flags fly. Suddenly we can’t walk around in front of each other with our fancy leggings and hot cars and social status so there is no reason not to be a goofball! Plus, there’s that whole world wide epidemic going on, so you know, perspective. It’s like everyone realized that being cheerful and silly and posting a video of it is WAY more fun than anything on the news right now.
So THANK YOU! And… dare I say it… maybe we’re even being closer to our true selves? Quirky goofiness and all? Maybe we’re being brave in a different way in this often scary time?
I hope so. Everybody boogie!
