Despite popular belief, not every black person has rhythm...

Today I discovered that despite the fact that I USED to be a "shake your booty" cheerleader and dancer, I have lost some of my stride now that I'm older.

I went to my first Step Class at the gym where I work out.  I set up my step in the back of the room so I wouldn't be noticed just in case I couldn't handle the routine.  But when you have big mirrors plastered everywhere, there's no getting around not being noticed.  So there I was trying to keep step to the music without looking like a complete idiot! 

Now, this story wouldn't be so bad if all of the other class members were young twenty and thirty-something babes, but everyone in the group was a baby boomer.  Even the men were on beat with the step! 

I couldn't get mad---but I will get even.  I'll be taking that class until I get that pep back in my step and make my race proud! :)  Beverly Mahone---also known as the Baby Boomer Diva---never gives up that easily.

Don't feel bad. I lost my rhythm so long ago I'd be hard pressed to remember when last I saw it. But they tell me, as long as you never give up they can't really say you lost the race.

Be well,
William
