Well aware I can’t dance

My next piece about “So You Think You Can Dance” is up at Alpha Mom:

“As an adult I have no illusions that maybe with wisdom I picked up a little rhythm. But that hasn’t stopped me from moving to music any chance I get, often while drinking and in front of large groups of frightened people. I dance not because I think I’m good at it — I know I’m not — but because of my love for it, and more than once someone has taken a picture of me pulling a move I learned from John Travolta and posted it to their website, usually with a caption that says, ‘Something tells me this woman is drunk.’ Interestingly, the way I move my body while intoxicated is no different than when I am sober, which is why I am lucky that a cop hasn’t ever pulled me over and asked me to walk in a straight line.”
