After a watching a full playlist of robot dance videos on YouTube, I was reminded of the time I was in middle school when I wanted to learn how to break dance. Lucky for me, I had a neighbor who knew how. Chris was his name and every afternoon he would bring a big piece of cardboard to my backyard to teach me the basics. But that didn’t last too long. Sadly, he was two years ahead me. He moved on to high school, the breakdance fad died, and I moved on to the next trend — finding a way to purchase a Gigapet.
I never kept up with moves you would call breakdancing. Now, like anybody who just enjoys music, I make up my own grooves and feel great about them. I don’t regret it, but I am always impressed of the human capacity of dance and how maybe one day that could of been me.
Making music though makes up for it all.
