What’s your happy dance?

When something really good happens I feel inspired to get up from my chair and do a little dance in celebration. It might be a press mention, a new business partner, or some code finally behaving the way it should. I do the cabbage patch dance.

The cabbage patch dance was introduced to the world courtesy of Gucci Crew II in 1987 but popularized by the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice in the 1990s. The cabbage patch dance is so simple; all you need to do is stretch out your arms, put your hands together, and move them around a bit on a horizontal plane. It is especially funny when combined with the Roger Rabbit leg motions.

It’s great way to remind your coworkers of the 1980s.

Do you ever have one of those days when you stare at code unable to figure out why the computer is not obeying your command? Fixing those types of frustrations necessitates a bigger celebration of throwing up your arms and jogging around the hallways or your apartments like Rocky Balboa at the top of the steps in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Yes, I am an odd expressionist, and it’s all good fun. Do you have a happy dance?

    Amazing…I do the cabbage too, and it’s usually after hours of banging my head against the desk (and not in the good way!) because of some silly coding problem. It’s kinda cool to see I’m not the only oddball..lol
