not me! monday


I get really confused when I start adding the "not me's" in the story, so I'm just going to tell you about what happened!

This was a couple of weeks ago but the embarrassment is still fresh in my mind.
---------------------------------------------------------------
I am very purposeful about not listening to music other than Christian or kids music when the boys are in the car with me. BUT this particular day I had dropped the boys off at Grandma's and I was headed to the dentist.

I was sitting at a red light in my town, listening to the oldies stations and all of the sudden a favorite song from my teen years came on (UgH! When did my teen year songs go to the oldie stations?!?:)). I cranked it up and started dancing and singing like I'd never sang or danced before (I felt like Julia Stiles on Save the Last Dance.).

All of the sudden, it hit me that I was in a mini-van with baby seats lining the rows and I probably looked like a goober. I very nonchalantly looked to my side and saw this poor teenage boy's mouth wide open and he was staring. All I could do was turn down the music, wave and smile.

Then yesterday at church, one of the members walked up and said, "You know Jodi, I think I saw you on such and such day and.... Were you dancing like a lunatic?" I just looked at him and replied... "You must have seen someone else, you know I am more reserved than that..." With that I smiled and he winked. It was our little secret, but that was okay because for a few minutes one afternoon I was Julie Stiles breakin' it down and groovin' my thing to Dancing Queen! :)

Here's a youtube link if you want to groove your thing!! :) Click here!

ETA: I guess it really is an oldie song! :) I guess I now have a whole different NOT ME! post lined up! :)

That's great!!! I've been caught myself a couple of times. There's no place better to dance than in your car:) Except the kitchen...
