More fun than the Swirling Eddies

(To the tune, "I Can Only Imagine...," by MercyMe)

If there are lots of caucasians
On those golden streets,
Will they cause the rest
Of us to clap off-beat...

Surrounded by white people,
Well, I just have to ask,
If they dance for you Jesus,
Will we be allowed to laugh?

Hat tip to Sarah for the link to the hilarious "Baby Got Book" video, which led me to this little gem of self-mockery. And my father says I have too much time on my hands...

Seriously though, this parody does provide a new imaginative description of heaven that I find encouraging: heaven will be a place where I can enjoy dancing and not care about whether I'm being laughed at.

I thought that was what the AAR dance party was for.

The AAR dance party is a little foretaste of heaven.

*splutter* The AAR dance party???

I. . . I. . . I. . . have no words.

I mocked the AAR dance party mercilessly for months before I attended the first time. (Images of tweedy academics dancing like nerds.) But then I went (and had a drink), and wound up having an absolute blast. Ask Dana. I shut down the party.

Turns out some of those academic types, especially the younger ones and those who haven't come from institutions that ban "most forms of social dancing" actually do know how to dance. But it was not such a talent show that I was intimidated off the floor. :)
