Well, it's not like I'll ever see those people again. ;)

I had an hour long train ride home today. Okay, I also had an hour long train ride away from home today, but it's the ride back that's important here.

It's a commuter train, so going away from home tends not to be crowded and going back toward home tends to be insane. Today was no exception. I was carrying my backpack and my big bag of CSA veggies, and hoped to get a seat on the train home after a long day. I was not favored by the seat gods.

However, I popped on my iPod and started bobbing my head. Music always makes a commute better right? Then I thought, "Well, just standing here is not very useful. What if I dance in place and get some exercise in too?"

So I did. My feet didn't move, and I have no rhythm, and no doubt I was that sorta crazy seeming woman on the train today. But I danced standing in place for half an hour, then did the same sitting down for another half an hour.

I figure, I'm never going to see these people again. So long as I don't encroach on them, what do I care if I look a little foolish?

And this, my friends, is what makes your late-20s better than your teen years. A much easier ability to say, "Screw what random strangers think."

    You really are a riotous_lioness....

    I would have paid good American money to see the looks on the faces of your fellow passengers.

    And for the record, when I'm in the car (SUV)... I'm grooving to Sirius Satellite Radio and seat-grooving as traffic permits and I have people looking at me like I'm some kind of fool. Ask me if I care.

    HAHAHAH! That is awesome! You're right - that is exactly why your 20s are better than your teens. The older you get, the less you care about what strangers think.

    WELCOME BACK, by the way. :)

    Thanks to both of you!

    I'm slowly migrating to not caring what my friends think when I'm enjoying myself, but I admit it's slow. After all, I will see those people again! :D

    And you'll find that when you get into your late 30's, it's much better than the 20's. :o) I went to a concert with my DH this last Saturday night. It was my kind of music, not his. So while he stood on his feet out of respect, I was swaying, and clapping, hooting and hollering, and dancing. I don't have any rhythm either. And while I thought to myself, I hope there is no one behind me that I work with that will report on Monday that I looked like "Elaine from Seinfield" dancing, than who gave two hoots what it looked like. I'd never see those people again. I was enjoying myself ~ thats all that matters in the end. I don't even care what my husband thought, and I didn't ask him.

    Love it, love your attitude! Wish I would have been on the train, I would have danced with you! I'm to the point that I don't even care what friends think! If I want to dance, I dance. (Dance I did, last Saturday, on stage in a full theater, and I wasn't alone!) Kudos to you!
