When Dancing Was REALLY Cool


I have danced to so much of his music. I must have had at least a dozen cheerleader pompom routines to his songs. And I tried so hard to make my hair look like Farrah's when I was 14.

That was my junior high years that died yesterday. I never thought I'd be pretty sad about all this, but I am. My feelings were mixed in the later years of his career because of all the oddities, but there's no denying his talent. I remember saying that to someone back in the nineties when all the weird stuff started coming out.

This was a favorite song of mine. Choreographed a pompom routine to it in 9th grade. Earned a superior rating with it at UCA summer cheer camp at Ole Miss and received the camp All American Cheerleader award that year.



I feel old today.

When I want a great hamburger, I use the grill at Fatburger. It's the only burger I know of that's better than I can make.

There is no denying the talent but the Messiah worship makes me delighted that I am mostly out of touch with reality about now.

We all mark our passage with the music that accompanied coming of age.

that didn't really come out the way I meant it to.

You feel old?

I'm exactly MJ's age. I can remember my little brother dancing to the TV trying to mimic Michael's moves and we were, what, 7 and 5? Now, chica. That's old!

Now, deal with it - and celebrate!
