I'm replying to this post but maybe should have clicked one further up, but the way I rabbit on you'll not be long in picking up that I'm covering about the last 100 posts.
Dancing - count me in, I have no sense of rhythm and start off really well but then just go off and do my own wee bop. Don't stand next to me in a step class, I can't do arms, legs and breathing all at the same time - it's not bonny I can tell you.
Pat I'm surprised at you, that you worry about your dancing, I "feel" you will have a natural sway to you, just move your hips in time to the music. If truth be told I have a wee dog and and Ipod, put the 2 together and when I'm out walking her I'm always singing, and have been known to have a wee dance in the park when it's quiet to - go me, am i bovvered? Not really.
I'm surprised at your friend at work, even if he is a bloke, mine couldn't have been more different, I've had cards, flowers, texts, emails etc from my boys - actually, just to show you the kind of humour we share, one bought me an ipod and loaded music on it for when I went in for surgery, I was a regular at the gym before and had another ipod and was always on the running machine singing away - I could clear the gym, anyway he loaded "inspirational" music on for me to listen to while i was off, first track "Girl you're amazing just the way you are", I was in tears, next was "you've got the music in you" - words are don't give up, you've got the music in you, don't give up you've a reason to live, ok so now I'm in floods of tears wondering what the hell are tehy doing, next song Mac the Knife - tears were still flowing but I was laughing my head off. They got worse from there on in, I still have them all though, even the rubbish ones (Flower of Scotland). Once he gets over the initial embarrassment he might be ok, a few of mine even offered to check out the "finished job" - I have declined their offer - pervs.
So if you organise a danceathon I might just pitch up with Pat in tow
