Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

TAT: Elaine Me

It's time for Tova Darling's Totally Awkward Tuesdays! Anyone who wishes to relive and share personal (or second-hand) humiliation, head over there and check it out.

Attended my 10-year high school reunion. It was a lovely evening, even though I went alone. Hubby was wonderful enough to stay home with our darling boy, but unfortunately that meant he wasn't there to keep me from drinking and dancing in check. Three plastic cups of slow gin fizz later...

I found myself on the dance floor doing "The Elaine" in front of old classmates and their significant others.


Now, let me tell you this: I am the master of Elaine. Anyone who thinks they can do it better, feel free to challenge me to a video duel. I doubt anyone will take me up that, as most mindful people wouldn't dare allow themselves to be captured on film during such a heinous act.

Me? Well... after a few minutes of classic, alcohol-induced Seinfeld moves, my fuzzy brain realizes that at least - at least - 10 people are laughing hysterically while trying in vain to steady cameras and/or phones at the dance floor. I am the only one on the dance floor.

Somewhere on YouTube, there is some random idiot making a dancing queen fool of herself for the world to enjoy. That'd be me.

But didn't they get the irony? That you were only PRETENDING? I'm sure they were laughing with you and not at you...

Sassy Britches said...

And yet you were so gracious about it! Or too drunk to kick ass and take names...?

Yaya said...

Hahahaha!


Oh geez...thanks for the heads up....my 10 year reunion is this year...now I know what NOT to do!

Funny in my mind said...

Hopefully you didn't throw up in your shoes. THAT would have been bad!

One of my favorite Seinfeld episodes ever. I've been known to Elaine-Out from time to time. Goes with the territory, I guess...

Snarky A. said...

Donnetta said...

If you can find yourself on You Tube - be sure to post it so we can laugh too. 'Cuz that what friends are for!

Michelle said...

Interesting. I have to plead ignorance on the Elaine, but ... I think I'll trust you that this is something you don't aim to demonstrate while sober. At least you know everyone else was having fun! ;)

Butterfly Kisses said...

lol at least you had the nerve to get out there and do it. I would love to see it too. And I love Seinfeld. Hilarious!

Mammatalk said...

I think I did that, too. Only I did it at prom. Love it!

LegalMist said...

I danced the "Elaine" at a wedding once, too -- and was the subject of many photos and videos.

Let's just say, I feel your pain...

Hyacynth Filippi Worth said...

This is priceless. I cannot wait to see the YouTube video. You'll surely post the link once it surfaces, right? ;)

Tova Darling said...

Hahaha! Oh my gosh! Care to share a video of it? :)

The Cookie Girl said...

Oh Honey! You should have called me and I would have been there to stop you. LOL
Okay, maybe not...but I would have got a kick out of seeing it. :)

Lesha said...

I'm sorry, that's so tragic and funny!

On the up side, hey, I gave you an award over on my blog! So go check it out! :) This totally solidifies why I gave the award too! You're so funny and positive when in that situation I probably would have broken down crying in the bathroom!

Mimi said...

OMG, is there a reward if we find this video? Lol!

3 Bay B Chicks said...

What? No video?

I think we should solve this problem immediately. Would you be willing to document the extent of your Elaine skills? Because if you are, I am definitely interested and have a little idea to share with you.
