Well, until now it has been.
Every morning, I close the blinds of my living room, switch off the lights and do something I probably shouldn’t share with you but it’s sort of become a habit and I’m slightly addicted so I’m disclosing. I know I shouldn’t, but here goes.
At 6am I indulge in a pleasure with a special gadget and I do something that makes me feel really good which most people start doing in their teenage years but I’m clearly a late developer.
Yes, I dance (why – what did you think I was going to confess to?). With my Nintendo Wii I’ve revived my interest in Zumba – so much better when it’s interactive and even better than that is Just Dance, where you follow characters on the screen and as the machine detects your movement it tells you how well you’re doing it. I’m moving from “OK” to “Good” with the occasional “Perfect” score.
I get carried away and go beyond the recommended number of songs in the “Sweat Explosion” selection and this morning did a veritable hour and a half including a crazy bout of MC Hammer’s “You Can’t Touch This”.
Judge me all you like, but I bet a lot of you secretly do it too.
