Kootchie Kootchie Koo

The other day, I went to the store to buy a new purse. The sales lady was especially perky. Like she had had way too much coffee. When I went to check out, I found her dancing to the music that was playing over the speakers. Okay, I thought. At least she's pleasant!

Apparently the perkiness was catchy.  It infected an old woman who had to be at least ninety years old. I had followed this lady into the store, and she could barely walk. But when she was at the counter, checking out, she couldn't resist busting a move to the music.

"Kootchie, kootchie, koo," she said, as she wiggled her hips.

I looked at her and smiled.

She looked at me. "Do you want to dance?"

I raised my eyebrows. I knew I wasn't going to get out of this one. So I joined the fun. There we were - a young lady, a middle aged lady, and an old lady - all kootchie, kootchie, kooing to the music. It was a sight to see!

    1. Yes. It's easier when kids are around, but I surprised myself and did it without them.

  3. Little did you know that Ashton Kutcher and his Punk'd camera crew were catching all the action with their hidden camera. Your segment airs this weekend on MTV! :)
