Impromptu Fun


Our lives are filled with unexpected obstacles. Sometimes its a pothole and sometimes its panic attack in the middle of Times Square. Since I’m constantly fluctuating between believing I can take over the world and wanting to hide under a blanket on my couch, I never quite know how I’m going to respond when faced with one of these challenges. I’ve been known to both stand on a table to be better heard and sit underneath it to avoid eye contact with casual acquaintances.

My usual mental state can be summed up with this dilemma: In the event of an unexpected flashmob, will I break out my own dance moves or will I hide in fear?

I’m trying to find an equilibrium between my vastly different gut reactions, but I’m not there yet. I think a good first step is choreographing a dance routine that will swiftly but stylishly remove me from sashaying crowds. Because you know what Benjamin Franklin said about spontaneity—if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.

Leave a comment. Just try it. It will be fun, I swear.
