It was junior high and with two of my friends we embarked on a journey known as hip hop dance class. I wore my spandex shorts ready to do the running man. The shorts would be armor to hide the fact that I didn’t have an inkling of coordination.
The strut was the mandatory warm-up for every class with I’m too Sexy playing in the background. We were to keep our heads up, shoulders rolled back, a sway to the hips, and strut across the floor.
I was a hopeless case as I clomped across the floor like a bull in a China shop. My hot pink neon biker shorts could not save me from my own strut.
It was just the other day as I was in the midst of my Christmas shopping running from store to store and I was reminded of those awkward teenage memories.
The jolt that brought that memory back to life was a blue haired lady in her eighties holding onto her walker and strutting her stuff. She glided across the floor with flair and grace. It was obvious no one was ever going to get in her way and she could eat any man alive.
I admired her strut and felt as she if she deserved a tiara for the way she flowed through the mall. It was her confidence and pose that gave me the urge to want bedazzle her walker. It would be the perfect combo for this blue-haired diva.
It also give me an idea when I retire to Boca if I have a walker I want it bedazzled to match my hot pink velour jump suits. It’s the only way to grow old and maybe, just maybe, I well be able to pull off that sexy strut. Afterall, practise makes perfect…
