Linda’s Just Jot it January and Stream of Consciousness post for today is a little different in that we are not to write about the prompt word, as you will see from the rules below, but rather something associated with it.
Check out the prompt below for more clarity.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: movement. However, don’t use the word “movement.” Choose some sort of movement, and base your post on that. Enjoy!
I do so wish that I could dance. I love music and actually get the urge to get up and dance, but sadly my body and mind let me down. I don’t have a lot of coordination and feel very self-conscious when dancing.
When I was younger and had a few drinks, I would get up on the floor and shuffle around my handbag, especially when something came on that I loved, but mostly I would be a wallflower sitting it out.
It doesn’t help that my sisters are great dancers and love to be up on the floor, especially as they try to drag me up with them. I remember once going to a BBQ, where everyone was dancing. As usual, I was kind of standing there awkwardly, when one of the male guests who I did not know well, grabbed hold of me and tried dancing with me. Well, if you can imagine my mortification, as I felt more embarrassed and even stiffer and jerkier than normal, and to top it off he complained about my lack of rhythm!
At home, I will dance about with abandon if I feel like it, but I tend to dread going to parties where I will show myself up, either by getting up and ‘dancing’ with my lack of rhythm or by standing around awkwardly trying to do that kind of half-dance manoeuvre!
I thought dancing was supposed to ease away your worries and stresses not add to them!
Love a good boogie!!!
I knew you would, Sis, and I would too if I was any good! 🙂
He he! Tgat old ‘Dance like no ones watching’ saying is very True!
Yes it really is, but I can’t do it!! 🙂
Could be worse…
HAHA! Oh, how funny John. That has cheered me up as I don’t think I am as bad as that! 🙂
Great post Sis I really do agree with you we can all get very embarrassed about dancing. I find it easier to dance inside my head. ??
WEll of course, I am a fantastic dancer in my head, Sis! 🙂
We all are ???
Oh, I only dance in the privacy of my home. Even though I think of myself as a pretty good dancer, I am often too shy to do it in public. Alcohol changes all that though.
Yes, I think alcohol can ease the nerves a little and boost the confidence! 🙂
That’s a shame, Judy, you deserve to let loose and have a good time 🙂
Thanks, Joey. Hopefully, I will loosen up with age! 🙂
I think you perceived lack of co-ordination my be led by your self consciousness, Judy. You are a poet so you do understand rhythm, it is a question of allowing yourself to get into the rhythm.
I agree that maybe I just need to let go and let myself get into it, that is my biggest problem 🙂
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
