Don't get mad, get even...

While we were out and about today, we were listening to Bowling for Soup. Without digressing too far, this is one of the bands the oldest really enjoys, so when it is on, it is usually accompanied - loudly. Today, we were all riding in my truck, which is a tight fit for all five of us. Needless to say, when the singing began, (and the oldest wasn't the only accompanier), it had the effect of drowning out the actual music. I asked repeatedly for the accompaniments to either stop, or at the very least lessen, all to no avail. So, what is a driver a vehicle to do? I turned the radio up and the singing too got louder. I turned the music down, but then only the singing could be heard.

I figured if you can't beat them, join them - so I started dancing. Yes, that's right - full on driver dancing in stopped traffic, surrounded by other Christmas shoppers (who needless to say were laughing their heads off). Did this solve my problem? Not really, but it was fun to see the wife slinking under the dashboard, begging me to stop while the children not only sang louder, but then too joined in on the "groovy dance moves".

Now all I need is a way to market automobile dance lessons.
