The Item for Day9: Nine Ladies Dancing
The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
“I know it is weird, but when I hear ‘nine ladies dancing’ I visualize the voices in my head dancing around and having one big party at my expense.”
“Ladies? Please. You mean nine crazies dancing.”
“Fine – nine crazy ladies dancing.”
“Tell me, what sort of dances are they doing?”
“Well, three are doing the Electric Slide, one is doing the Cabbage Patch, another one is doing the Macarena, two are imitating the twins from “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, and two are doing the Running Man.”
“The Running Man?”
“Yeah, and they are really good, too! You should see them!”
“No doubt they are all sporting the ‘white man’s overbite’.”
“They are! How did you know?”
“I am really scared for you.”
“So, why is that you are the one that talks to me the most?”
“Because, the others are too busy dancing. Duh!”

I hope they’re dancing around a pile of handbags 🙂
Handbags? Something tells me there’s a greater chance of trash bags. 🙂
Is this a Sybil-only dance party, or can anybody join?
Please, feel free to join in on the crazy – er – fun! The more the crazier – er – merrier!
“You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind. Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance, well they’re no friends of mine. . .
We can dance. We can dance. Everybody look at your hands.”
Your head sounds like a happy place!
Great. Now my head is pounding, because they are all doing the Safety Dance. Gotta love Men Without Hats. Nicely played, Amy.
I love the image of the Peanuts dancing twins! Love those guys!
I channel my inner “Peanut dancing twins” at every party. Love ’em!
This one is much more believable! lol
Yes well – it is based on a true story. (smile)
For me it’s “Brick House” and the wind. Ah, memories. 😉
The wind? Don’t know that one. I’ll have to check with the voices in my head.
The Running Man and the Macarena! Too funny. Sounds like a few bad weddings I’ve been to.
Glad you got a laugh, Jackie. I admit – I never tire of seeing wedding guests ‘get down’.
Your voices are fun!
Says the one who doesn’t live with the voices. *sigh*
Three of the famous Rockettes were on TV yesterday; they came to mind
I am certain the Rockettes have a better kick than the dancers in my head.
“And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KFAa40kZ30.
I had hoped to see 9 ladies sedately engaged in a quadrille with their partners or at the other extreme 9 ‘ladies’ performing the cancan -but I think your dance would be more fun.
If fun is crazy – then my dance is certainly more fun! (smile) I love that song, by the way. Thanks for sharing the video.
All my voices have two left feet.
Ha! Mine, too!
