I know this is an old video, but it hasn't lost any of its cuteness over the years.
Life isn't cute all the time, though. Many times it can downright suck...big time. Having a bad hair day, having people fail to keep their word, not finding the ice cream flavor you're craving in the supermarket, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, being in the right place at the wrong time, being in the wrong place at the right time -- all these suck...big time.
Yet in the midst of all these there shine certain somethings to keep us afloat: the people we love (and who love us) and familiar comforts. They are invaluable in helping us get through the good and the bad. More than these, though, there exists within us not only the hope but the expectation that things will get better. So despite the general suckiness of things we not only survive, we thrive.
Until the gigantic mirror ball falls on us.
But at least we get to do our thing first, right? And we get to dance like mad under the lights, hey ya? We really don't know the length of time allotted to us to shake our booties on this dance floor also known as life before it's lights out. So dance, I say. As frenziedly as you can, dance! (Though slow dancing is yummy, too.)
If you could only see me now, boys and girls. I practically put that alien to shame. Hah!
