We Had No Idea It Was Being Filmed…

Published by Paul Hatcher on

The other day, my wife and I received a very pleasant surprise in the post.

The lovely couple who supplied both the disco and the bar at our wedding recently had sent us a brass-coloured, love-heart-laden USB stick. We had no idea what was on it until we inserted into the laptop. What followed was pure, unadulterated hilarity…

Unbeknownst to anyone at our wedding reception, there had been a video camera secretly filming the entire reception from speeches right through to the last dregs of dancing several hours later – all from the vantage point of the DJ overlooking the dance floor and surrounding tables.

A very simple thing to do really I guess.

But a beautiful concept also.

Watching so many people get on down and boogie the night away, including me doing my best combination of Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson and John Travolta was quite a sight believe me.

So, my very simple question is this:

When was the last time you danced like nobody was watching?

Dance like nobody's watching

They say children laugh hundreds of times a day and adults a mere handful if you’re having an especially good day. I don’t know if that is really true but I do know that dancing must come a close second when it comes to making yourself feel good and releasing large amounts of endorphins.

Why not take some time to dance if not every day, then at least every few days?

You don’t need anyone with you – in fact, I personally recommend doing it alone – that way, you really are dancing like nobody is watching.

And who cares if someone sees you anyway…it will probably make their day.
