I’m slow to the party, but awhile back Angela Klocke started her Triple Dare Tuesday meme. This particular week the Triple Dare was to do something totally new.Which I did this afternoon.
After a workout at the gym, I walked to the adjacent Sunflower Market. I bought my groceries and walked back to my car with my iPod still playing.
Voices Carry by ‘Til Tuesday came on (love, love, LOVE Aimee Mann). I sooooo wanted to sing along, but what if someone heard me? I’d be mortified! But I soooooooo wanted to sing along.
Have I mentioned I soooooo wanted to sing along? Ummm, loudly? It was a beautiful September day, in which a perfect moment could be had by singing to a great song with catchy lyrics and an up beat. But there were people around. What would they think?
I remembered Angela’s dare and, the photo of her freewheeling cartwheel.
Inspired, I did it. As I walked through the parking lot, I sang, “Hush, hush. Keep it down now. Voices carry. Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh…” I wondered what I sounded like without the background music. I wondered what people thought. I wondered if I was breaking the law.It felt really weird. And liberating. And joyful!
So now, I triple dare YOU (even though it’s not Tuesday). Post your results here (and on Angela’s blog).
