Dance Bully

My husband has this signature move that he does whenever we go out dancing. It's a simple move and one that he has done for as long as I've known him. It starts with a rhythmic head bob.

The bully.

I could see them, standing around her, laughing.  She was laughing too. I watched her trying to get them to NOT do it.  She was trying to be a good sport, but, they just couldn’t let her alone. They did it.  They pulled off her wig... her wig.Her hands shot up to her hair as she tried to straighten it.She continued to be a good sport.She was asking, nicely, for them to give it back.  She was asking nicely....more
