Dance, Dance, Dance

I don't really know how it happened, but not many minutes ago, Shay and I were dancing around in the hotel room. I put some Justin Townes Earle on (thanks go to Lisa Smith for the new tunes) and out of nowhere we started dancing like nimrods. I don't dance often, but I like to do it once in awhile to make Shay laugh. I have no rhythm, which is weird because I play an instrument. 

I would suppose it's pretty interesting to watch my attempts at dancing. I don't really care though, because I like to laugh with my wife. These are some of the little things that I tend to live for.

I hope that when we "grow up" we still have moments like this. I think we always will, because it only takes me about .3 seconds to slip into my goofy mode, and it usually only takes about 7 seconds after that to make Shay laugh. If nothing else, I know I can start dancing to make her laugh. 

Download Mike McClure's song "Like an Idiot" and you'll know exactly what I'm describing.

Keep on dancing in the free world.


  1. Yay! Nora and I were dancing to that last night, too. We need a good barn dance around these parts. You got a barn?

  2. This is beautiful, mostly because I've heard Scott say almost the same thing before.

    I'm loving these glimpses, Ben. You're terrific at this post-a-day thing, too. You've got great material and a knack for capturing it.

  3. Yes, Lisa, there are a couple of barns in the family. We would have to dodge the pigeon poop while dancing, though.

    Teagan - thanks. I'm having fun with the process.
