March 11 – Disco Dancing

March 11, 2023


Tonight I did something I haven’t done in 40+ years. Disco danced!

We got a new remote control light for the ceiling, a light to brighten up a dark spot in our living room. I turned it on tonight and found a setting with a flashing rainbow light. I was surprised and then it made me smile. I said, “Oh, it’s like a disco ball! We can have a dance in here.”


Within moments, my husband was playing “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees loudly from the speaker. It made me laugh, and then I started dancing!

Next, “Play Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I Will Survive,'” I said, as I took off my sweater.

I have always loved that song, but it reminds me of one of the first viral videos I ever saw. (In 1999, the only platform we had to share funny videos and other digital material was email. Who else remembers all those FWD:ed emails?)

I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. Thank you, Two Writing Teachers!
