Don't be jealous...

Well, well, well...

Since SOMEONE had to go and bring it up, I feel like now might be the time to share this with you all. Yes, as most of you know I am a dancer in training here in Nigeria. The dancing tithing time at churches have had me in a tiff more than once. I just don't know how to get down like Nigerians and always feel...oh i don't know...humiliated?

However, as the months went by my skills were growing considerably. I'm not sure that I am yet there, but when a friend came to visit in October she asked me to show off my new moves. I would like to take this opportunity to share with the world my incredible Nigerian break down...and it is incredible.

Awww, I loved it!

THAT will be our official, SMARTY PANTS DANCE!

I also love your ensemble- seriously.

You're a doll!

Mare, I think the fact that you can defy gravity and dance on a wall is awesome!

You weren't kidding when you compared yourself to Elaine on Seinfeld. Or was that Sherri dances like Elaine?

I can tell there is going to be some move bustin' in August (no, that was not a psychic predicition Helen.) ;)

Ok, now that my neck is back in alignment...fabulous skillz! Could you send that in slo mo or I'll never learn it.

Annie- I'm offended that you would even THINK I would be a bad dancer- c'mon...I was a cheerleader, a gymnast, love music,a singer, ITALIAN--there's no way I could be equated with Elaine. I laughed at her dancing moves alot though.

Mare, that was awesome. I'll have to practice that one a lot if we're gonna do it at the store. (Can it be done on the floor, or is the wall part of the routine?)

Sherri, I think I just saw throwdown. How do we KNOW you're a good dancer? All we have is your word that you were all those things... Maybe you're not even Italian?

In the words of a totally obscure old commercial that Charlie and I still quote to each other:

PROVE it, Pretzel Boy (Girl)!

Bring on the rapture. After viewing this video, my life is now complete.

Helen said...

Mare isn't the only one who can defy gravity.

Helen - Are you TRYING to freak me out? (involuntary shudder)

I need to revoke my earlier comment, cuz I haven't seen the "Dance of the Snuggie" yet.
