My connection to Michael Jackson
I know Michael Jackson was a bit cooky but I always told Mitch that no matter what he is one of the greatest dancers ever and an awesome singer. So in honor of him I will tell my "Thriller" story.
I was in a jazz class my freshman year at BYU and it was Halloween time. So naturally we were learning the "Thriller" dance. It was so great and fun. No really, I loved it! Well, on the day of Halloween or near to we were to perform the dance in class. We were all getting into it and having a blast. As we were doing the dance we were doing the part where you raise your hands and walk like a zombie. Then, you turn. Well, me and the girl behind me were too close to each other and as I turned I realized that I hit something. What was that something? Well, it was her mouth. Yep, I knocked out some of her bottom teeth with my thriller move. Awesome. Pretty much there was blood everywhere. The worst part is that Shan and I were maybe laughing a little after because the groan that the girl made was kind of funny. Also, it is really hilarious that I knocked out her teeth. I mean, who does that? Yep, I do.
Let's just say I felt really bad when I saw the girl maybe a year later and she still had her braces on. Did she still have them on because of me? I am not sure.
I truly love the "Thriller" dance. It was not the only song of his I did a dance to over the years. Michael has a special place in my heart. Poor crazy and awesomely talented Michael. In honor of him I am going to put all of the songs I did dances to on my playlist. Oh the memories.
