Where was I? ok right - last Thursday night, at 11:30 PM I head out to my parents house to get some stuff together to wear to work on Friday (yeah - the night before...) cause we are dressing up for Halloween ( that's how we roll, I procrastinate; my parents are at the ballpark till all hours of the night watching my brothers play softball)
So - 11:30 PM - I arrive at the parents. Mom and dad are up but dad is REALLY wanting to go to bed. However, mom and I are rummaging in the closet trying to find something for me to wear (my mom has more clothes than God..wait - God doesn't have clothes...LOL - but you get the idea) AND I have my friend Denise and my boy with me just to throw in a little more chaos - cause I'm cool like that :) Next thing you know, the boy is running around in a dress my mom for some unknown reason thought that I could get into, that I wore for Easter when I was probably 10! My dad is flipping out cause the boy is in a dress and the boy is now threatening to wear it to school for Halloween!!!!!!! (seriously papa - calm down....LOL this just instigates the boy though! hee hee - don't know WHERE he gets that??!)
During all this - my baby brother (who still lives at home) has a boxer (in the bed with him) who has now heard all the comotion and is barking (it's midnight now at least....) next thing I know - baby brother comes rolling out with the dog to put her outside, we all have a little laugh while he grumbles something about having to be at work at 6AM. blah blah blah....he gets no sympathy from us.... cause like I said - that's how we roll ;-)
Somehow baby brother gets distracted from going back to bed (can you even imagine how THAT would happen, me trying on clothes, boy in a dress, dad doing laundry, Denise and mom yappin....) ANYWAY - the parents just got DVR a few weeks ago and baby brother now thinks its fun to play with the DVR box and show us he knows how to work it (which he didn't!!!) - ending up on some THUG LIFE music channel. This booty shakin thumpin now has me and the boys doin a little groove around my mom in the living room! (the "bumping" and dancing drives my mother batty!) LMAO! Then I remember not to long ago, the boy and I watched a tutorial on how to "JERK" This my lovely little friends is a lovely little dance done to the song "Jerk" - which I'm sure very few of you have even heard of! it's ok - you don't have to know WHAT it is to find the humor in it.... I proceed to get the boy to show them how to jerk! (it's now....oh maybe 1:00?? AM!!!) Ok - well the "jerk" is essentially the "running man" in reverse!!!!!! NOW are you with me.... I KNOW you guys know what the running man is right?!?!?
WELLL - far be it from me to not demonstrate for my momma who didn't know what that was. So 1 AM (on a work/school night) the boy, baby brother and I are at the parents doing a little dance!!! A little jerkin', a little runnin man, baby brother doin a little rappin........
I told you ALL THAT - to get to this......
Here is the aftermath from the night of dancing at the parents:
Next day - I send baby brother a text (or facebook msg or something) saying that I could really use a lawn mowing if he might be available for that. He proceeds to tell me he would - but he would be really afraid he might fall asleep at the wheel since SOMEONE kept him and his dog up till all hours of the night! (snarl)
Then yesterday - i get the following video - with a note attached that says "you will appreciate this"!!
it's like 6 minutes long - but take the time to watch it and step back through the years of dance!!!!!!!
When it gets to the running man - give me a little shout out! LMAO!
and just for fun - if you remember it - get up and give it a whirl! =-)
Hope everyone has a FANTABULOUS weekend!!!!!!!
