Do you guys know that video of the little boy yodeling in Wal-mart?
That’s me, but with dance instead of yodeling. Who even yodels in 2018?. My partner finds it hopelessly embarrassing, but whenever we buy our weekly groceries instead of walking through the aisles like a normal person I boogie and ballet my way from one frozen section to another. I pirouette around paper towels and cha-cha-cha past the chips and snacks.
I won’t lie, I’m no Misty Copeland, but I have rhythm and a certain amount of grace. I danced all the way through high school and university, so I’m not shy about my moves. More than once people have chuckled in my direction and my partner has had to intervene before someone runs me over with their trolley (accidentally, of course) but I still do it. Partly because it feels good and partly because supermarkets are really boring so I’m glad to provide some kind of entertainment for my fellow shoppers.
What I’m trying to say is, sometimes you should do the uncomfortable, silly, socially awkward thing because if people are going to laugh at you anyway you might as well have fun doing it.

We need to start shopping at the same supermarket! And ah, I always wished I had the dancing talent but I dance anyway 🤣
You mean dancing at the same supermarket lol. Just like karaoke, it’s more fun if you don’t know what you’re doing. 😁
I do that too! Which supermarket? Lol we could start a chorus!
Progressive at Fairview. They wouldn’t know what hit them 🤣
Yes! Okay I’m not that great but I have rhythm and can follow a beat. Ready like Freddy lol!
