Dancing With the Leftovers

It's just not her night, is it? Sitting on a plate with a parsley corsage, trying to make small talk to a chicken bone and some cold mashed potatoes. She's a leftover!

If only she'd sent for the Pickwick Company's guides on how to teach yourself to dance in only 15 minutes a day. Tip Top Tap Dancing, for example. That'd be perfect for a party - just tippy tap right off the plate and into the middle of all the couples clutching each other. Instant social success!

Just follow the little shoe outlines in the booklet. Piece of cake, right? Hold the booklet in one hand and look down at your feet and...huh. Maybe that's not so easy.

Tell the green peas to save you a spot on the plate, just in case.

Well darn it. Our high school prom should have included gigantic food props now that I've seen that image. Hindsight and all that y'know...

your so right, and thats just so wrong... Like I always say - no wonder woman were all on valium by the 60's...

yikes!

life is unfair.
and loneliness is a dish best served cold.
maybe she can practice kissing the mashed potatoes instead of the back of her hand?

Eric - Even gigantic food props would not have helped our HS prom!

Tracy - Valium goes with all retro leftovers! ;)

heidi - That sounds kind of messy, but she might as well make the best of it...

I don't know why they didn't buy several copies of this for the gang on DWTS. Bet it would make tonight's season premiere VERY amusing. *g*

Lidian said...

Tori - See, if they did, I would watch it more than I do! It would be so much more fun!

How is she supposed to get up and shake her groove thang with food all over the back of her dress??

Lidian said...

Hairball - It's going to mess with her center of gravity all right.

How do you know she isn't ten inches tall and that's a regular sized plate of food? You might order the dance matte thing and it turn out to be the size of a regular sheet of paper.

Lidian said...

tim h - Good point, we don't really know. If she IS only ten inches tall, that could be a social liability right there. Unless we match her up with Stuart Little.
