Dancing Machine

The sun was out so the second I got home for work, I headed back out the door for a great 6 mile run.

I was running along Magnolia Blvd when I noticed this old guy up ahead. He was very fit, wearing huge headphones and running at an extremely slow pace. As I was gaining on him he turned around and started "running" backwards. This was when I noticed he was more so walking and dancing and had some pretty sweet moved.

As I was about to pass him he busted out some crazy foot work so I ran along side him and joined in. We danced together for a minute or two, smiled at each other and I headed off.

I could not stop thinking how cute this sweet old man was and how fun it was to dance with him. We were complete stranger, never said a word to each other, both danced to our own song and yet I ran away feeling nothing but unconditional love for him.

Turns out Steph has seen him in action too.

Mr. Magnolia, I heart you. I hope we get to dance together again soon.

I just got a little teary eyed! Good for him and good for you. I swear if more people dance and sang out in public i think the world would be a happier place!
