The Queen's Meme

Posted: Tuesday, June 01, 2010 by Travis Cody in

I haven't done one of these in awhile.  Now that Dancing with the Stars has crowned it's Season 10 champion, I thought I'd try one.

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #39:  The Last Time Meme
This meme will make no sense. Do not expect it to. It has no rhyme or reason. There is no serious theme or deep thought required. Just answer with the first thought that pops into your brain and go with it. After all, that's how I made up the questions. Stop rolling your eyes.
Now if I tried to answer all 79 prompts, we'd be here all week.  So I decided just to pick one.  I hope I don't get in trouble, but me and meme rules are often at odds.

When was the last time you...danced like no one was watching?

Playing the music when it's night or day,
Whether cold and gloomy or in the sunshine.
Stepping close, embracing each other to sway,
Moving forward and backward, keeping time
In a crowded hall fill'd with revellers,
Ignoring pulse pounding beats that shake walls.
Effortless, they glide to soulful singers;
Romantic couples twirling through a waltz.
Some nights are truly for mad gyrations;
Cares of the day releas'd and forgotten,
Shed, cast away to unbridled motion.
Out of breath, spent, with music turn'd low, then,
Eyes only for each other, never straying,
Dancing in dreams like no one is watching.

When was the last time I danced like no one was watching?  Yesterday, today, and every day to come.

    The last time I danced like no one was watching was when the Saints won the Super Bowl. And it wasn't, dancing that is...

  1. Barb says:

    I haven't actually danced in quite some time, but metaphorically speaking, every day! =0)

  1. I think I would ONLY dance with no one watching.

  1. They are getting longer I think!

  1. They are getting longer I think!

  1. Debra: It didn't need to be pretty because it came from pure joy!

    Barb: Metaphorically is good, but you should try a little hop jig once in awhile to keep your hand in.

    Charles: Sweep the lovely Lana off her feet in your living room!

    V: They are!

  1. I am going to ignore the dungeon-deserving "longer" remark by you and the Vinnymeister and say....I loved the ONE answer you gave and the poem made me smile.
    Now I want to dance.

    What was I thinking??!!
    Seriously. What?!

    79 promps? Really?
    That was a very smart answer. I must admit I can not remember last time I did.
    Hope you had a great holiday weekend :)

    You picked the perfect question out of them all for you... Dance away sir.

  1. jennifer says:

    Amazing answer. The one out of 79 that you chose was done VERY well.

    You have a new look! Please don't tell me it's been like this for ages or I will feel like a heel. I've missed reading you Travis.

    Oh! And when I danced today? My daughter WISHED that she had not been watching. Scarred for life, she is.
