Blame it on the Vodka

I crawled out from under my rock Saturday night and danced the night away at Boy #1's wedding reception. I've never bothered to learn any of those "line dances" except for the Chicken Dance and the Hokey Pokey. The steps to the Electric Slide have always eluded me. There's another one and I can't remember the name but the man singing the song tells you what to do. So after several vodka and orange juice's, I said, "Hell, I can do that." So, carefully, so's not to spill my drink, I stomped my right foot, jumped two times, did the Charlie Brown and said, "Hey I'm dancin."
Later in the evening while out on the dance floor the sister in law informs me that she requested "Da Butt". My blank stare and vodka soaked grinned surprised her and my cousin.

"You've never shook it to Da Butt?
"I hardly ever shake it."

Before I knew it, I was doin Da Butt. I was shakin it. Really, when you have Da Butt, you don't need The Chicken Dance or The Hokey Pokey.
I found a Da Butt video on YouTube just in case I'm not the only old fart in the room.

Thankfully when I searched Da Butt on YouTube, I didn't find a video of myself. If you see me on YouTube, please be kind.

You mean you didn't post your embarrassment all over the web? How inconsiderate of you.

As far as I know there is no video!

OmG! Sue, you are too cool! Congrats on your sons wedding.

Sue said...

Yeah Karen, I'm way too cool. I looked just like those dancers on the video.

Doin' Da Butt!

Did you have to go up front and light the unity candle with the brides mom? I am dreading that part. I like your dress, from what I can tell that it looks like. :-)

Karen, yes and the lighter wouldn't work! Practice! Do you have a son or daughter getting married?

Thank you Bill!

Sounds like a good time. Gotta love the courage a little vodka will give you. This is why I NEVER drink anywhere that has karaoke.
