I Love To Tell Stories at Work
Because a lot of the ones I work with were not even born yet in the 70's I love to talk about the 70's when I was a teenager having a great time.
Tonight I was around the kitchen pass when I started singing this KC Sunshine Band Tune that back in 1976 a bunch of us use to go to the International Hotel near the airport in Dorval Quebec and dance to. It was a dumpy little dance bar downstairs where there was some tables and a little light show. About 5 of us guys would be sitting at this table sipping beer. We were a year under the drinking age. I had some long hair , a moustache , and 17 years old.
There would be a table of girls sitting across the way. It was the start of the disco era. When this song played everyone would hit the dance floor.
I did a little rendition of it tonight pretending I was dancing in my high heel boots stomping down on the dance floor. Everyone was cracking up who was there.
Believe it or not I do that often at work. I get a lot of laughs and I wasn't even born yet comments. So to remember the song play the video and think back what you were doing at the time. I am sure you were dancin' to this tune.
I could go on and tell you about the topless bars we use to go to but I will stop there.
