The other night the song, “Whoomp! (There It Is)” blared over the sound system, as the artist who originally sang the song, Cecil DC The Brain Supreme, crooned the house down to get the party started (side note: I met him backstage and he’s incredibly kind, follow him on Instagram).
My wife, perhaps for fear of being seen with me, decided against dancing by my side, and instead turned on the camera.
Why do I share with you this awful dancing in my lusciously ill-fitting Tux & non-formal Vans?
Because, it was graduation night for me – the One Year Celebration since my patellar tendon ripped from the shin bone, kneecap flying up my thigh, surgery that would keep me from bending the leg for over 2 months, nearly a year of PT – Whoomp! There It Is.
If you missed that I got injured then you must be new to the Promise community and my blog…here are a few articles to choose from to see what happened!
My knee and leg are much better than they have been, I can’t thank everyone enough for helping me through such an ordeal, and for my readers having to read so much about it.
It’s shocking to think that was a whole year ago!
I feel like I’m back, though I can’t do all I once could – I can’t run like I used to, no more moonwalking for this fella, no jumping or bounding up the stairs.
Nope, just so grateful I can walk, move, sit, and even dance again.
And whether anyone wants to see it or not, I will continue to dance, because that is just me over there, keeping The Promise to still be myself.
I hope you dance like no one is looking, even if the cameras turn on.
