S is for Shuffling

Think you don't have time to practice your dance skills? Think again. I carved out a whole hour of practice today by combining what is usually one of my least favorite chores with music and dancing. It turns out, mowing the lawn is the perfect vehicle for practicing the shuffle step. You've got the push bar for balancing. You get dibs on the iPod because you are the one mowing the lawn. And no one is going to interrupt you, because again, you are mowing the lawn. It's a win-win for all involved.

Dial it over to LMFAO, pop your ear buds in, and start your mower. Before you know it, you are party rocking your way across the lawn. Now put a little bounce in your step. Let your feet glide across the grass. Grass provides the perfect amount of slippage for practicing the shuffle step in your high-tops. Go ahead and get into it. What do you have to lose? It is socially acceptable to dance out loud with your iPod while you are mowing your lawn. (I don't really know if that's true, but so far no one has come by to ask me to stop.)

If you are unfamiliar with this type of shuffling, here are a couple of guys who seem to be pretty good at teaching the moves. (Well, as long as you don't read the comments on YouTube. Geez. Everyone's a critic.)
