Line Dancing #AtoZChallenge


Alice next door  goes to the community centre up the road five days a week.  She does loads of stuff like, chair aerobics, (don’t ask), Pilates, flower arranging and tai chi. I don’t know where she gets her energy from. Someone (Jimmy big mouth) told her I was trying to keep fit so she invited me along. I didn’t like to say no, she’s been very lonely since her pal  Doris passed away.

  • Are you ready Bernadette?
  • As I’ll ever be Alice. Oh are you driving? I thought we were going to walk
  • Ah sure won’t we get enough exercise down there , I’ll be too tired to walk back
  • So what’s on today ?
  • Line dancing
  • Line dancing?
  • Ah Alice, I don’t think so
  • Come on, it’s great. You’ll love it. Me and Doris go, sorry…we used to go every week
  • You must miss her something terrible
  • I do Bernadette, she was my best friend for over forty years. I still can’t believe she’s gone. This is my first class since she died
  • Awww Alice…
  • I didn’t like going on my own, but when Jimmy told me you’d love to go it gave me the boost I needed to get back.
  • That was very thoughtful of him alright (I’ll bleedin’ kill him)
  • It’s great exercise Bernie. It’ll do you the power of good
  • I’m not a big fan of country and western Alice, but sure I’ll give it a go
  • Good girl… and sure who doesn’t love Nathan Carter?
  • Who’s Nathan Carter?
  • Ah Bernie, you’re a gas ticket. ‘Who’s Nathan Carter?’ You crack me up sometimes

Two hours later…I’m sweating, I’m starving and had to listen to ‘Rock me mama like a wagon wheel’ at least half a dozen times. I swear I could eat a full packet of them now 😱😱😱

      1. Ha ha ! That’s quite funny ! In my country these kind of classes would be patronised only by the young and trendy. The old ladies go for walks in the park or join laughter clubs where they laugh insanely for half an hour !
