Tap Dancing Fool

I recently watched the episode of The Simpsons where Bart and Homer go to Catholic Heaven, where they, of course, Riverdance.

It reminded me how much I liked that music and that I hadn’t heard it in years.

Tap dancers have a special place in my heart. I remember trying to talk my son into taking tap dancing lessons when he was about 9. He gave me that look people reserve for imbeciles and week old fish and said, “Yeah, Mom. That’ll make the kids like me.” Still makes me laugh that he could drip with so much sarcasm at such a tender age.

Did you ever experience the phenomenon that is Riverdance? Or do you prefer your stage experiences to be more talky?

Or do you prefer your Irish dance with monkeys?

    The one that gets me is Celtic Women– whenever I am channel surfing on a Saturday night it seems I am suddenly confronted by a horde of Irish Lassies in evening gowns with violins tucked under their chins. As if that’s a typical Celtic Woman?

    Step dancing monkeys are kind of fun though.
