Caught in Spontaneous Dancing!

I'll 'fess up. I sometimes break into fits of spontaneous dancing. The music moves me and I surrender.

It happened this morning at the grocery store.

Ever since I broke my foot a few years ago and couldn't drive for about 6 weeks, the DH and I have been in the habit of making our large weekly grocery run together. We were headed down the cereal aisle and he was driving the cart. (What can I say? The man has control issues!) I was ahead of him, zeroing in on the Cheerios when a really fun number started over the Muzak.

And thinking the DH had worked hard all week and deserved a cheap thrill, I started to dance.

Well, maybe not dance. It was more rhythmic strutting with attitude. When I decided to get fancy and throw in a little spin, I discovered to my chagrin that the man pushing the cart directly behind me was NOT my DH.

It was a little old fellow with a mile-wide grin on his face.

The DH had been distracted by Twinkies a few cart-lengths back.

But, I had made someone's day anyway. And my DH had a good chuckle, too.

So I will continue to engage in spontaneous dancing whenever the spirit moves me. No matter who's watching.

What silly thing have you been caught in lately?

LOL Emily, that is really funny. My DH would have got a chuckle out of that, I do that sort of thing too.

Nynke said...

LOL! :)

I sometimes go skipping and/or singing through the hallway at work, but I don't think I've been caught at it lately... I also do silly dances while sitting at my desk; my office mates probably see it but they're also good friends and they're used to it. I don't laugh at their yoga moves either :)

Thanks for the moral support, Alaine and Nynke. Good to know I'm not the only one who must dance "to the music she hears!"

Hey, wait, now I remember... just this week, I had this great song in my head (an Italian disco song from the 70s: Il Veliero), and I just *had to* dance to it, even if I was standing in the middle of the canteen - and my friend looked at me, wondering what I was doing. So I was caught at it recently :). The music she hears, indeed...

LOL thanks for the visual, that cracked me up. I'm getting used to weird looks & smiles when I giggle or snort when listening to an audiobook while grocery shopping
