Sitting here in the dark with no lights nor electricity.
Right when I was about to sit down to type up an article for today, we heard a popping noise and then our power went out.
Sad, but true that I can’t live without the internet and my computer for the sheer fact of the matter that I use so much of this for my work all day long.
I can totally live without it, but still just more of a hassle if you ask me.
Anyway, what I wanted to share was this hilarious video that was actually messaged to me earlier yesterday morning by my own mother.
The video was of this 88 year old woman dancing down her front steps to get to (I believe her granddaughter’s car) Dion’s Runaround Sue.
This lady reminded my mom of one of my great aunt’s who had a similar sense of humor and once I saw the video I couldn’t agree more, too.
In fact, my great aunt was always cracking jokes and usually the life of the party.
At one party when I was younger, she took two sticky gift bows and placed one over each of her breasts (fully dressed of course, it wasn’t that type of party) and proceeded to tell us smiling from ear to eat that now this was a party!
And also at most family weddings, she could also always be found leading the conga line and dancing it up with the best of them.
By the way, my aunt also definitely had a mouth like a sailor, but was never used in vain just to keep us on our toes a bit just like the lady in the video seemed to have, too.
So, when I viewed this video, I immediately could see my aunt as clear as day in front of me and she would have been the first to do dance her way to the car and put on a show for all the neighborhood to see with not so much a care in the world as to what anyone thought, while all the while enjoying herself to the fullest while doing this.
In case you were wondering, she had told me right after I got engaged to to Kevin, that when we did get married, that she would be definitely be leading the conga line that night.
Ironically, she never made it to our wedding passing away of terminal cancer days before we actually got married.
I still think of her quite often though still and I am quite sure that she was smiling down today as I was watching this video and remembering her, as well dancing just a bit, too!
If nothing else, she got that the last, laugh with us being without power for almost 24 hours! And yet this video totally gave me a laugh when I indeed needed it.
Now, enjoy this funny video I have been referencing her today below (make sure to listen all the way until the end, too-trust me you won’t be disappointed!):
