Recently I had someone ask me about a Twitter Exchange they saw on my Blog Sidebar between my friend Ann-Marie and myself. It Went something like this
ampincivero @usethefarce I heard that you pulled a muscle Riverdancing?! Sorry I missed that! UR hilarious. Have a great weekend. Cheers. 🙂
usethefarce Who me? Lies I tells ya.
ampincivero @usethefarce But I know “Believe none of what you hear, half what you see & all that you experience.” Come Riverdance at Ribfest tomorrow!
usethefarce @ampincivero it is true. But I’ll save you the visual. Trust me its better for both of us. Was a one time thing I’ll probably not live down
Let me explain a couple of things before I go too far. First I work shifts…both days and nights. Sometimes nightshifts are long and boring and often around 3 am two things happen to me. I start to get a little silly/punchy..and I get a second wind. Which is basically a “Perfect Storm” of comedy and embarrassment, comedy for my coworkers and embarrassment for me.
On this particular night I received an email with the following video
Now to this day I have no idea what came over me…but in talking/laughing about his video I thought it would be ok for me to regale my coworkers with my own version of the Riverdance (sans headband sadly)
Well two things happened..first I got what was possibly the biggest laugh of my life…the second? I pulled a goddamn muscle. Not in my legs, or hips, or even anywhere on my lower body. I pulled a muscle….IN MY UPPER ARM…whaaa? Yes..in my arm…in throwing my arms down stiffly at my sides I pulled a shoulder muscle. Ouchie…and boy did that point out just how out of shape I am. (I still say that I am, in fact, in shape…round is a shape damnit)
So this twitter exchange was just lat week…the event..occurred over a year ago. Needless to say, I will probably never live this down. I’m also constantly being asked to recreate it..which I really can’t. I tell people it was a once in a lifetime performance. And if how my coworkers reacted to this time is any indication, I’ll be much more careful where I direct my 3 am silly energy in the future.
Oh…incidentally, if you enjoy music and great song writing you should check out my friend Ann-Marie’s YOU TUBE CHANNEL and Follow her on TWITTER
MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU
