It was a rather unexpected occurence. I'd just gotten out of a class that I thoroughly dislike. I have serious issue with my professor... namely that I don't like him as an educator much less as a person. Needless to say, I was in a terrible mood. My day wasn't over yet though. I had a meeting with my group from another class. We're presenting on child abuse when we get back from our placement and we wanted to assign tasks. The meeting went well.
Beside us, some other students kept playing all kinds of songs ranging from Gloria Estefan to Brittany Spears to the Backstreet Boys. It was very memory lane and we all wound up singing and dancing along at one point. It was impossible not to. Here's the thing. My MP3 player has speakers so I can share music. Once our meeting broke up, I turned it on, put on a Glee does Brittany Spears classic and along with two friends, sang and danced my way through the halls and out of the school. Yes, we were stared at. The point?
I've wanted to do that for at least a decade!
You know that scene from The First Wives Club with Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn? At the very end when they sing You Don't Own Me and sing and dance their way down the street? It looks like this if you have no clue what I'm talking about. For years! YEARS! I've wanted to do that! I don't know why. It just seems like such fun!
And now I know what it's like! I finally did it! AND IT IS FUN! We started out to Glee's version of Toxic. After that we moved on to Glee's version of Firework. We added a lyric: Do you ever feel like a plastic... spoon. I don't know why that came out, but it was fantastic. Oh Glee... I don't sing or dance, but you make me sing and dance. I Imagine we looked very much like The First Wives only less synchronized. We weren't scripted after all.
I can now check this off my list of things to do. Thank you to the girls who made this fantasy possible. The fact that it was random and spontaneous makes it even better. If you're surprised by the strangeness of having this as a fantasy, well, it's me. That's the only explanation I can offer you.
I highly recommend doing this. It put me in a much better mood. Wonder what fantasy I'll accomplish next.
