SERIOUSLY!

I just had to post a brief, personal achievement that I am SO super excited about!

I can now, officially do the running man!! BUT... only in my kitchen wearing my plaid ballet flats! When no one else is there!

I have been trying to do the running man for over 20 years and have never ever not even ONE time gotten even CLOSE to getting it. I am not a bad dancer either, mind you but just couldn't rock this particular dance. I can totally do the wop and the cabbage patch so back off your high horse of good dancing judgement!! :)

I even use the ability to do the running man as a friendship qualifier, which is weird because if I were trying to be friends with myself I wouldn't be scoring any additional points. Although I do think doing the worm is the equivalent. And no, I cannot do that either.

All it means is that you kind of go up a notch in my book if you can do it....!

So... can YOU do the running man?

You are hilarious Carla! I'd love to hear what finally got you over the hump in your struggle to learn how to do the running man... And yes, I can do it - ever since 7th grade, baby!

Krista- I was sliding around on my floor in my shoes dancing with Georgie when I just busted out with it! Believe me I am always trying when I am either alone or with Dodie (who is AWESOME at the running man) just to make her laugh at me!

There will be no such video.

ok maybe

I'm currently out of breath cause I wanted to see if I could STILL do the running man. Yes, I can...however, I almost hurt myself in the process. Now Olivia is doing her own version all over the house.
