Hello future readers,
Yesterday after the cartoons were over, Sunny and I decided to walk over to Sam's Snack Shack for a milkshake.
Marc, Jason Robyn and Bridget were already there playing pinball and hanging out.
Sunny and I walked in and waved to everybody. Marc and Jason were too busy playing pinball to notice us.
I sat down and Sunny went over to the jukebox. Just then Sam announced we were having a dance contest and the winner would get a free banana split! Far out!
He told us that we would each get to dance to half of a record, and he would decide who gets the free dessert! He gave Sunny 3 dimes and told her to pick 3 groovy songs from the jukebox.
The first song that came on was "Funky Worm" by the Ohio Players. All my friends like this song because it's so funny! Sam called Marc up first. He's a pretty dynamite dancer!
Sunny finished off the song. Get down Sunny!
The next song that played was "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John. Sam called Bridget up for the first half of that one. Do it Bridget!
Jason got up for the next half, doing spins and stuff. We always said he was a dancing fool!
The last song was "Express" by B.T. Express, and now it was my turn! As I was dancing I could hear the kids saying "Woo! Boogie down, Julie!"
Robyn took the last half of "Express". She got up and started shaking her hips and clapping. Shake it, Robyn!
After everyone was finished, Sam announced that the winner was our Dancing Fool, Jason! Sam put a banana split on the table in front of him.
"YAY! Groovy! Outta Site! Congrats Jason!" , we all yelled. Jason cheeks turned bright red! *giggle* As Jason ate his prize, Sunny had an ice cream soda, Bridget and Robyn took turns at pinball and Marc put a dime in the jukebox and asked me to dance.
Marc and I did The Bump to "Hollywood Swinging" by Kool & The Gang. All right!
We all had a really groovy time, especially Jason! I really like to dance, whether it's at Sam's to the jukebox, or in my room listening to records or the radio! Sometime I get carried away and my mom says I sound like a herd of elephants stomping around in my room. Do people still have dance contests in the future? I wonder what kind of dances you do. I usually make up my own dances, but I'm pretty good at The Bump!
"HollyWOOOOOOD! Hollywood Swinging!"
Until next time, future readers,
