Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole...FIESTA!

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.





Yep.
"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!

You have no idea just how much I'd pay to see you spanking your bottom on the dancefloor! And yes, TWSS!

Helen, you always know how to brighten my day! I'm sorry you didn't get to do the chicken dance...and if you ever spank your own bottom on the dance floor...please tell me there will be video! ;)

I can picture the whole thing, but I still hoped the video would be of you dancing! Ah, you are so funny. :)

So, you know when we all get together we must shoot a video dance routine set to "Single Ladies", right?

Yes. We must.

Helen said...

Wendy, I'm taking offers. What do you bid? TWSS.

Bridget, I don't own a camcorder, so I am not sure I can make any promises.

Jason, Thanks. Maybe someday I'll do the macarena in front of the imac camera...When is your Birthday?

Katdish, dressed as chickens, or Church ladies? I think the ankle length dresses with doily lace collars up to our chin will be almost as unique as the Piston Single Ladies video....So you know I am in...

Oh yes. We definitely must.

Some of my favorite pictures from my wedding are Frank and I, Chicken Dance, caught by the professional photographer...

It. Ruled.
