Is There Boogie-Woogie in Heaven?

I’m serious.

One of the most pleasurable and fun activities in the history of earth is the Boogie-Woogie.

The Boogie-Woogie makes you smile. You can Boogie-Woogie at home. You can Boogie-Woogie at the prom. You can Boogie-Woogie in the White House. You can Boogie-Woogie on stage. You can Boogie-Woogie in the street. You can Boogie-Woogie in the movies. You can Boogie-Woogie at the movies, too. You can Boogie-Woogie at the big dance. You can Boogie-Woogie with old Aunt Berti and Old Aunt Berti’s grown-up children. You can Boogie-Woogie in tux and gown, cap and gown or in your pajamas. You can Boogie-Woogie with the preacher’s kids and Boogie-Woogie with all your school teachers. You can Boogie-Woogie in Miami—and San Francisco and London and Mexico City and Sydney and Berlin and Hong Kong and every place in between.

And a lot of people have.

The Boogie-Woogie gets you into the swing of things. Have you ever Boogie-Woogied at a wedding reception? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied at the lodge? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied in a night club? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied in the city park? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied at a street dance? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied on Cinco De Mayo? Have you ever Boogie-Woogied in competition.

Well, a lot of people have.

The Boogie-Woogie is good healthy exercise. Cowboys Boogie-Woogie with their boots on. Drummers get up and Boogie-Woogie to the beat of different drummers. Plumbers Boogie-Woogie with their pants on the ground. Tight Ends Boogie-Woogie in the end zone. Pharmacists Boogie-Woogie with drugs. Pianists and Technical Writers Boogie-Woogie at the keyboard. DJs Boogie-Woogie all night long. Lawyers Boogie-Woogie—for a fee.

You can Boogie-Woogie on a piano. You can Boogie-Woogie on a harmonica. You can Boogie-Woogie on a yakkety sax. You can even Boogie-Woogie on your blog.

The Boogie-Woogie is inspirational. Fat people Boogie-Woogie. Skinny people Boogie-Woogie. Not so pretty people Boogie-Woogie. Beautiful people Boogie-Woogie. Rich people Boogie-Woogie with poor people. White folks Boogie-Woogie with black folks. Educated people Boogie-Woogie with 8th graders. Politicians Boogie-Woogie with strange bedfellows. The Yankees Boogie-Woogie with black socks and White Sox. Big brothers Boogie-Woogie with their little sisters (gasp!).

How 'bout you? Where do you Boogie-Woogie? When do you Boogie-Woogie? Who do you Boogie-Woogie with? Wanna Boogie-Woogie one more time?

Everybody's doing it. My First Wife and I were doing the Boogie-Woogie at 6:30 this morning, but you can do the Boogie-Woogie anytime you want. The clip below is what we were watching. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do—over and over again.

I sure hope they let us Boogie-Woogie when we all get there, cuz this all sounds like a little bit of heaven to me. Wanna join us?

You say all sorts of people can do it.... well, those of us who have two left feet or two right feet... well, we have trouble walking across the grass without falling down. I'm not sure the knees would take it. But, yes, I think there will be boogy-woogy in heaven... the angels probably already have it down pat.

Cara said...
