I often think, "it sure would be nice to break out into song right now." And other times, when sharing an emotional moment with someone I think, "it sure would be nice to break out into choreographed dance right now." If only we started learning songs like we did nursery rhymes, that matched certain emotions. Like, this is the "Stressed Out Song," and here's the stressed out step. Give it a little shimmy a spin and a heel click, and booya, the stressed out song. Wouldn't that be awesome! If you'd like to join me in writing some real-life show tunes, let me know. Just think of it, your best friend from college who you haven't seen in years steps off a the plane and you have a million things to say and can barely contain your emotion, and instead of having a standard exchange, you walk towards each other snapping, extend your left leg and you right arm and throw your head back and sing, "Jooooooy, I can't contain my jooooooooy, you're finally here, the tears, what have you been up to all these yeeeeaars..." and then you bust out into a rumba beat. And the best part is, everybody in the airport knows the song and the steps, and they all join in.
