The Emcee would play a "real" song every once in awhile and she played Thriller, by Michael Jackson. I had gone to the Ladies Room and on my way back, I took a short cut across the dance floor, which was almost empty. All of a sudden, people started clapping and cheering. I looked around and they were cheering at me!
I wasn't dancing at all, I was just walking back to my chair, but being me, I got into the spirit of things and I tried to time my steps to the music (not easy). Everyone was clapping and I was pronounced the winner!!!
I stayed "in character" and stiffly climbed up on stage to take a bow and then "Lurched" my way back to my seat!
It's a good thing they didn't ask me to Moonwalk.......LOL!!
