Dance Party Friday-Youtube Edition

My stint as a mid-20s yuppy was spent in a cubicle for most of the 2000s. I didn’t mind it too much, except it was very restrained. I had to keep my conversations at a low decible and laughing out loud was like handing in your resignation.

I was fortunate enough to work with some folks that have become very close friends and I had have fond memories of corporate life.

I had a delightful co-worker who tried desperately to implement a Friday Dance Party.  We were an investment company and her husband (a designer) worked at a company that had 30 minute Friday dance parties in locked offices on a weekly basis. She wanted our stuffy little firm to loosen up a bit and I couldn’t blame her.  The idea never really gained momentum. We tried it once and there were a bunch of no-shows. No one had the guts to dance in a room with their co-workers, in the middle of the day, during office hours, without the availability of alcohol.

I’ve never had that problem.  There isn’t a tune that I can’t find a way to shimmy to. I try not to listen to upbeat music while I’m driving. Otherwise, I’m dancing all over the place.  If the supermarket is jamming to the oldies, you better believe I’ll be shuffling down the produce isles.  I hear the music, my right foot starts twitching, and around I go.

I just love it.

What ever happened to dance like no one is watching?

This girl doesn’t seem to care who’s in her way.

I saw this video and felt a challenge coming on. I mean, I can talk the talk but can I walk the walk? Would you do this? In a laundromat? How about a restaurant? How about Target? I think most Targets have security guards and a restaurant owner would call the cops.

A laundromat seems like the safest place to do it. I doubt a laundromat attendant would care enough to ask you to stop. No offense to laundromat attendants. If I were one, I wouldn’t care. After a long day of sweeping up dryers sheets and wiping down counters sticky with detergent, I’d welcome the change.

Would you dare me to dance in a public place (like a laundromat), record it and throw it up on youtube?

Ok. I will do it once I receive 20 blog followers.

Allright people? Get to following.
