I dance. Every morning. Sometimes in the evening, too. If it’s warm… I’m outside. But mornings? Gah. No way you’re getting me outside until the snow’s gone, mud’s hardened, stars align, and… you get the drift.

So here I am. Dancing my heart out using the Just Dance 2017 program my dear son purchased for Christmas. Imagine my surprise when with that tiny effort, I (and my dance partner) have reached 24th place out of 78,130 participants.

Call me a skeptic, but seriously? All it takes to rank in the top 25 is to log in approximately half an hour a day for less than three months? Either the game’s incorrect, not many people dance daily, or… perhaps Ubisoft is stroking my ego. Hmmm.

Either way, I part of me wants to give it another whirl tonight to see if I can break into the teens.

Wouldn’t that be a hoot?
