BFF and I, in general, usually do not pay attention to what other people think about us and our craziness. I mean….we are who we are and we tend to have a generally good time when we are together that includes lots of laughter. So, if we do this around others, consider yourselves lucky. You are welcome. When we are in a car, we really have a lot of fun because it usually involves singing at the top of our lungs and jamming out to good music. My god daughters can attest to this as they have been in many a car ride where BFF and I get down to the music blaring from the speakers. And I do mean blaring…I don’t listen to music softly. BFF used to complain about my music level in my car till recently when I got in her car and it was just as loud and we giggled that she was taking lessons from me. When we were in Phoenix for Little Red’s big day, this was no exception.
We were in my car, driving to the church to do our thing as Little Red’s Godmothers and were talking about something or another when one of our favorite new songs came on…Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. What a great song. You just can’t be in a bad mood with that song. And unless you have been living under a rock, you know how catchy and dance worthy that song really is (video is down below for your enjoyment). So, there we were at a stoplight when it cam e on my Zune and BFF turns it up even louder so that I am sure it could be heard for blocks away. We like to share. And then it began…RANDOM DANCE PARTY!!!!! BFF and I are known for shouting this in certain situations (like a ride line at DL or an elevator) and dancing to our heart’s content. Try it sometime…it will make you laugh, smile and feel good. So we begin Random Car Dance Partying to heart’s content. And I mean full on car dancing. That car was rocking and rolling I tell you. There was singing, hair tossing, butt wiggling and synchronized arm movements. No car dancing is complete without synchronized arm movements. We really are pros at this. It is a skill I want to put on my resume: Car Dancing Skill Level: Expert. I think this could really help me someday in the workplace. I mean who wouldn’t want to hire someone with expert level car dancing skills. I know I would. The light was long so we enjoyed ourselves for almost the full song and continued car dancing as we turned onto the next street on our way to the church.
Suddenly, I hear honking and see out of the corner of my eye, a truck with some landscaper dudes in it frantically waving at me. Thinking maybe there is something wrong with my car, I roll down my window to see what they want, the music now spilling out for their enjoyment. BFF and I look at each other quizzically and then at the truck full of guys as they start cheering, clapping and giving us thumbs up. We glance at each other and BFF shrugs, not quite knowing what it is they want. Suddenly, as they hold up a piece of paper with a “10” written on it, it hits us…they must have been behind us at the light and witnessed our epic car dancing show. We bust out laughing and I yell at them “New show at the next stoplight!” BFF yells “Any requests?” as the hoots and hollers get louder and suddenly I have a feeling that they might make it rain dollar bills on us at the next stoplight if they could. They continue clapping as we take little bows and blush a tad bit having been caught in epic car dancing but hey….we need to keep up our skills. I mean…you are welcome guys in the landcaping truck. Glad we could make your day more enjoyable with a random dance party.
Take a lesson from BFF and I…turn up your music and have an epic car dance or do a Random Dance Party to the elevator music, the music in the grocery store or the music in your head. Go right now, turn on Uptown Funk and do it. You won’t regret it. You might even get some hoots, claps and some strange landscapers making it rain dollar bills on you while you do….although that last part is a little scary and I might have been afraid for our lives if the landscaper dudes had followed us all the way to the church. Don’t turn into to SOTL creepers landscaping dudes. Applauding is ok…creeping is not. And you are still welcome.
Oh yeah. I didn’t die today. I did hone my car dancing skills to the expert level and wonder if the landscaper dudes would turn creeper but I didn’t die. I am Fat Girl with a BFF who likes to Random Dance Party and apparently we put on a good show at stoplights Running. The experiment continues…
