I know. I am late with my Life is Funny post. This week's Life is Funny post is going to stretch the meaning of the word funny. I am talking fun--y. I had a lot of fun on Friday, but I am not sure that it was Hilariously funny, but I sure did have fun, and would like to tell you about it!
Well, Friday evening we had a Silent Auction Dinner Dance benefiting our Parish's School to go to ... (That is why I was not on the computer all day...hours of making myself look barely passable...) Now, when I was teaching, I had lots of these things to go to, and the teachers always felt the need to keep me off of the dance floor. It was for the sake of our professional dignity they said. Well, there was that time at the beer garden during the carnival where the ESL teacher and I polkaed, but that was because the others weren't there to save her...
There was some question in my mind on Friday as to whether I should dance and have a good time, or attempt to retain some professional dignity due to my being entrusted with teaching CCD.
"Ole ole - ole ole / Ole ole - ole ole/ FIESTA!" and I was out joining the crazy train, laughing, waving, dancing, and singing the lyrics. But you what was really funny? Instead of being disturbed by my loss of composure, my pastor came up to me later to say that he was really happy to see me out there having a good time. Isn't that sweet?
I also tried to lead the other CCD teachers in a "Chicken Dance" chant to get the DJ to play it, but they left me to chant it by myself. The DJ paid me no heed.
It is a good thing though that the DJ did not play "Single Ladies". The Parish does not need to witness one of their CCD teachers, Ms. Helenatrandom, spanking her own bottom on the dance floor...Or do they? Well, there is always next year...
How about joining my friend Wendy's blog carnival? Really, she isn't picky! She will accept any definition of funny!
