Dancing King

Yesterday I had mentioned that my husband and son were out of town.  They were in Baltimore for a family Bat Mitzvah.  (Unfortunately my daughter and I could not go because of her dance schedule.)  If you don't know what a Bat Mitzvah is, it's a Jewish "coming of age" celebration for thirteen year old kids.  Basically, it's like a wedding.  Huge!

Anyway, at the reception party, my son was the center of attention.  The little man danced from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM non -stop.  My husband gave me the full report:

"Everybody stood around watching him," he said.  "Even the dance instructor was impressed with his rhythm and moves.  He won every prize in the house!"

I could just imagine it - my boy in a suit break-dancing on the floor!

My husband continued.  "All the chicks were digging him.  There was one blond girl about his age who told him he was cute."

"Great," I said.  "And what did Bubba do after she said that?"

"He spurned her and chased after the hot older dance instructor."

Oh boy.  Definitely a sign of things to come. I see big trouble ahead!

  10. Bubba sounds awesome. That's my cat's name, too. Bar mitzvah's are so fun.

    1. Great name for a cat! I agree - Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a ton of fun. They're just ridiculously expensive. In a couple of years my daughter might have one.
