Dancing a JITTER BUG

And no — I’m not talking about that little medieval flip phone with the big font text that elderlies use to keep up with cell phone technology (I know you’ve seen the corny commercials that come on in the middle of the night) – but I am talking about the sensation that swept the 1940’s. I am referring to Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers as well as all of the thousands of undocumented dancing troops that specialized in Jitter Bug’ing.

I won’t dare say, that I personally remember the era;
however, seeing the video makes me feel much betta’,

because it likens to the dance that I’m currently doing.
The devil’s been busy, but I ain’t up for screwing.

I’m Dancing a Jitter Bug over here at a new weeks start;
may passion, skill and I be inseparable & never part.

This weekend brought residential troubles upon my domesticated land –
Sunday morning my home was being cased by a thieving mexican man.

I awoke at 2:44 am – in dead silence, because the burglar made no noise.
I saw him in time to shoot himbut that was not my choice.

Once he realized all car doors in my drive way were locked – (to him) it was mildly vexing.
Then the he looked to his right and his left for clearance, before walking off and texting.

Texting? Yes. Thieves rely on technology too.
My guy duly grabbed a steel bat and begin to chase ol’ dude.

The story could’ve ended ugly, but it didn’t – and we returned home safely with no wince.
To our relief the quiet thief was clearly caught on home surveillance.

Technology is my thang and today: I’m cutting the rug,
I’m Qui
Bidding a HAPPY MONDAY to thee – as I Dance a JITTER BUG.

  1. Wow! Your GRIOT SKILLS are mad crazy Qui!

    I’m glad that everything ended okay. It’s always a blessing to be
    up in the middle of night
    and checking the perimeters is A MUST.

    It’s also good to hear that your technology gadgets came in handy. Kudos to Apple’s iCam surveillance.

    You can never be too secure…
