Kick off your Sunday shoes

So I think the kerpupples must have sat near me through one too many times of watching Footloose. Why in the world would I ever think this? Well, they don't like it when I dance. Ripley especially barks furiously at me anytime I spontaneously trip the light fantastic around the house. It's pretty entertaining, if a bit unsettling. Usually it will just encourage me to wiggle more enthusiastically and sing, to the tune of Safety Dance by that luminous one-hit-wonder Men Without Hats:

"I can dance if I want to, I can make my doggy bark..."

That's all I've come up with so far. If I were more clever and/or less lazy I'd complete the lyrics. Perhaps I'll put it on my to-do list.

The mother-in-law unit arrives tonight for Thanksgiving tomorrow. She will be the only one joining the spousal unit and me - a cozy little family gathering. I'm lucky that we get along so well. Most of the time I think she and I find more things to talk about than she and the spousal unit, her own son.

Happy Thanksgiving, Slave. And you don't dance like Elaine Benes do you because that would make the kerpupples bark for sure. :)

LOL chel - I do love JLD and Elaine, but if I danced like that I'd never dance at all. I did get told once in high school that I should be on American Bandstand...I think at the time I thought it was a compliment. Ha!

My dogs hate it when I watch football. They hide.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Actually, Men Without Hats had 2 hits "PoP" Goes the World was the other. When they bark, it is a playful barking or a sit the fuck down kinda bark?
