Breaking out into dance at Barnes & Noble...

Do you ever hear a song that just makes you want to get up and dance? Or if you're standing when you hear it, makes you just want to start dancing all around the room? You don't even necessarily have to like the song. It may just be *that* catchy or maybe the music just gets your blood pumping and makes you want to move. We play pop music at my job. Which I freaking hate because I'm not a fan. However, a few songs that come on just get my blood pumping and make me want to dance around the restaurant. And sometimes, I do. A song by Usher (no, I don't know which one, I just remember it was Usher) came on last night while I was in the dish tank (area where we have all the dishes, huge 3 tier sink to wash dishes, etc) talking to an employee. The song came on and I tried to ignore it but my head started bobbing along. His head was bobbing along. And then, we were dancing around the dish tank like fools, the dishes he was putting away abandoned and my talk about his punctuality (lack of, actually) over at the right time. My boss walked back there and saw us dancing around to the song after maybe a minute. Employee stopped dead in his tracks. Me? Nah. I just kept going. My boss just laughed, threw out a couple ridiculous dance moves of his own, then we all laughed and got back to work. Thankfully, he's cool sometimes. ;)

I do that at home, too. Only it's with music I actually like. Especially when I'm cleaning because I love to have music on while I clean. It makes whatever task I'm doing more enjoyable. The downside is it also makes things take longer if a dance inspiring song comes on. Then I'm grooving around the room, singing loudly and generally just enjoying myself.

I also do this randomly in public places if the urge strikes. I'm bad at ignoring my impulses sometimes. ;) It could happen in a bookstore, walking through a mall, waiting in line at a concert; during a hockey game; anywhere really. If I feel it and the song moves me, I will break out into dance. I likely won't do it for the whole song in public but it'll happen, trust in that.

Keep that in mind if you ever hang out with me. I am goofy, silly, dorky and I don't give a fuck what other people think about me. So, if I look ridiculous breaking out into a goofy dance in the middle of Barnes & Noble? I don't care when people stare or give me strange looks or even make fun of me. I am who I am and I'm comfortable enough to be myself all the time. Which is likely why when I'm stuck in traffic I rock out complete with air guitar while in my car. Only when I'm sitting still, doing that while driving would be dangerous. ;)

I'm not attention seeking with these things. I don't care if no one sees or no one pays attention to the things I do. I just do what I feel like doing. Like I said, I'm bad at ignoring my impulses. ;) I have a lot of energy and I just like to have fun. Also, I really just love to dance. And thankfully most of my friends and my boyfriend just know how I am and accept it. A couple of them will even join in some of my random impulses at times. Which is more fun. Acting like a dork is even more fun when you have someone goofing off with you. :)

Happy Friday!!!
