I ‘m at work Tuesday morning (March 14th) when I get the call that we are closing the cigar shop at 1 PM because the snow was slowing foot traffic to a standstill. After a two-hour drive home in white-out conditions, my wife, Debby, greets me with a proposition… lets make some people smile today and Let It Snow was born!
There is no question that social media has become the ruination of most people who use it daily. Negativity is rewarded with more interaction than positivity as a rule and Debby was tired of reading how much people hate the snow.
In most people, misery is an infectious poison and man does it love company. It spreads like wild fire from person to person. Debby doesn’t allow people’s misery to bring her down, as you will see in our video that has really caught on, she shares her joy with the world and makes herself the antidote.
No one is thinking “Moonwalk” as Kim and Mr. Jonathan are sitting patiently waiting to be called to dance in this “Spotlight” Jack and Jill. Spotlight simply means that the competitors will be dancing one couple at a time. Events will often do this when they don’t have enough pros for a proper dinner show…The competition heats become the show.
Just prior to going on Mr. Jonathan noticed that every song that was being played was not only the same tempo but also the same genre…hiphop. With a twinkle in his eye he leaned in and asked Kim how good her moonwalk was and a look of shear horror covered her face!
“Moonwalk!?” She whispered through her teeth, “What the hell are you talking about!?”
“Never mind” Mr. J replied, “Please forget I even asked, I didn’t mean to freak you out” They both straightened up in their seats and their names where called…Here is what happened!
In Jack and Jill competition you can take first place with out all of the judges placing you in first. When every judge gives you first it is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a competitive couple. The expression is “getting a picket fence.” Mr. Jonathan and Kim Moonwalked their way to that picket fence on both of their very first competitions. They remain friends to this day and still love dancing with each other.
