Driven to Dance

A police officer pulled me over and asked, “Is everything okay, sir?”

I told him it was, then asked, “Why?”

He explained, “The way your were moving around in your seat, I thought you were have a problem.”

Smiling, I answered, “No. I was dancing to the song ‘Thriller,’ by Michael Jackson.” It is a lengthy song, so I knew it was on the radio still, so I turned it back on so he could hear it.

“Oh, okay,” he responded, “Have a good day and try not to dance while you’re driving.”

Turning the radio off again, I replied, “Yes, sir. Have a good day and stay safe.”
