The doors open and we all head in to the classroom. Then our instructor, Mark, comes in acting all cool – Visualize this, but with a fedora... and Asian.
The “cool and careless” front immediately vanished when he saw us – “YOU GUYS ARE BACK!” I’d seriously compare his excitement level to at least winning a Lottery scratch ticket, if not the full on MegaMillions lottery! Please remember, it’s been over a year since we last took this class. We both smiled and then Steph was like, “Wow, we must be very memorable.”
We jumped right into learning a dance to “Me and My Girlfriend” and quickly realized how you should never jump to conclusions – the peeps in the ghetto, hip hop attire were dressed like that to make up for their shortfalls in dancing. Not that I’m one to judge, but seriously. Steph and I killed that dance! And we noticed that we are the only ones that make jokes with Mark and aren’t really concerned with what other people are thinking – probably why Mark loves us. At the end of the class, we got another call out – something along the lines of how he’s excited to have some people (as he stared, wide-eyes at us) return. Don’t worry, we’re planning on returning in less than a year this time.
It was awesome. I keep going through it in my head today and just want to bust a move, but unfortunately I have a window where everyone can see in my office. I guess I can take my chances…
Here's the song, in case you want to envision me groovin' at my desk.
