THE DR. PHILBILLY SHOW -The Dance
When I was in high school I had attended a dance after a football game. I’m not much of a dancer now and I was even worse back then, but I knew how to get my slow dance on. As my buddies and I were checking out the girls my radar went off. That’s the one. So I took a deep breath and asked her to dance in my shy little voice and she said yes. I was just about to walk away from her when I realized she had said yes and wasn’t laughing.
We started dancing, she was very cute and I was very nervous. My face was buried in her big 1980′s hair and thinking “Gee your hair smells terrific!” Then I told two people and they told two people and so forth and so on. I never did get paid for coming up with that commercial either.
I was chewing on a piece of gum and when the dance was over I realized later that my gum was gone. What the heck? I was so nervous I probably just swallowed it. After a few fast songs another slow song finally comes on. She said yes once so maybe I’ll try my luck again.
I went to look for her and when I saw her I froze up like a statue. Not because I was nervous this time, but because I realized that I had also just found my gum. That’s right, hanging from her hair. Daaaaaang!
Since it was a slow song I just slowly turned and walked away. I’m not sure when she ever found it and I never asked. I did, however, learn a very valuable lesson from that experience that I can explain in just two words. “Tic Tac!” I’m just sayin’.
