What Would I Do?

Last night I did something I haven’t done in a long time.  I danced, and danced, and danced.  No, I wasn’t out at one of the local pubs after having a few.  I was at a high school graduation party.  The 18 year olds had long since gone and there were 3 or 4 of us 40 somethings rocking the house and shaking our booties.  Earlier in the day, we were reading some of the “end of the world” posts.  They were amusing and a little bit silly but it got me to thinking about what I would do if I thought the world was going to end.

Bruce Cockburn has a song that goes something like this…”if it were the last night of the world…what would I do that was different, unless it was champagne with you.”  This morning when I woke up, besides wondering how stiff I’d feel today, I realized that if it had been the last night of the world I wouldn’t do anything different.  I’d happily dance, dance dance with my friends until the very end.
