Anyhoodle. This morning after walking Emily to school, Miss Sally Derg and I are on our drag/run (Sally is still hating exercise) and there's a huge line of cars waiting to pull in and drop off their kids. You can see that people are getting testy in their cars. I had to stop and wait for traffic and a groovy song came on my iPod so, while Sally is sitting calmly waiting for the light to change with her tail thumping (we weren't moving, you see. Happiness for her.) I started busting a groove. I mean totally ridiculous dancing with a goofy face, because hey. It's drizzling, funky music is playing, and people are being weird because OH MY GOD I HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER MINUTE IN MY CAR, RAAAAAGE and that cracks me up.
And while one of the two cars closest to me had a woman that was clearly embarrassed for me, the other lady started laughing and car dancing. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to do something completely goofy and fun in the presence of someone grumpy. Randomly. Silly. Do the robot while waiting in line at the bank. Grab one leg, put the other hand behind your head, and pump that leg like you're Bobby Brown in the checkout stand at the grocers. Something. Anything. Do it! Then post this idea to YOUR journal. Get other people to do it, too. It'll be like the LJ version of a flash mob. (shout out, poshcat!)
Don't you think we should do something like this every few weeks? I love it when I catch people being silly. And clearly I don't embarrass easily. :) [and if you need help, do it around a little kid. You can excuse any silliness on just you trying to entertain a baby, right? Hee.]
HAPPY TUESDAY! [ETA] If you want, here's the song I was listening to, the very non-PC "Get Low" with Lil John [Yeah!] and the Yin Yang Twins. This song makes me laugh my butt off. "I done been to the club 'bout fifty-eleven times, can I play witcho panty line?" WOW. LOL.
