Freaking Out in Coney Island!
Yesterday, I made one of my dreams come true. Every since the mid-80s and the prominence of such great dancers as Shrimp and Shaba Doo (Breakin' 1984), I've had this secret desire to be a famous breakdancer. I noticed that a group of breakdancers were taking a break so I asked them if I could dance on their mat for a little bit on the Coney Island boardwalk. Little did I know that they were going to turn on the boombox to "Planet Rock" and clap around me as I did the robot and moonwalked in front of a gathering crowd of people.
