So we’re stuck in an elevator….

…and rather than stare at the closed doors I’m going to jump in front of you, grab you by the shoulders, look you in the eye and say,

“Hi! I’ve begun blogging in recent months! My blog is called Common Sense, Dancing and it’s about the Real and the Ridiculous as they show up in my life. Did you ever notice how a sense of humor is just common sense, dancing?”

Then I’m going to watch as you reach around me to repeatedly push the Help or Alarm button in the futile hope of rescue.

And then I’m going to release your shoulders, step back, and sigh a big sigh of relief that I’ve been able to work through the Elevator Pitch for my blog. We’ll both go back to staring at the closed doors, but you’ll be trying to skootch away from me as best you can in such a confined space.

I will thank you for your attention.

Next stop, Ladies Outerwear and Fine Accessories. Mind your step leaving the elevator.

    Jamie, thanks. (It made me laugh too, thinking about if it would ever really occur!)

    The post you wrote about (for?) your husband is wonderful. It was a lovely way to start my day!

    I love how you did this – really unique! I also really like your pitch! Did you come up with the common sense, dancing thing or was that a quote? I really like it a lot!!

    The Common Sense, Dancing thing is taken from a quote by William James, a philosopher from the 1800s. The full quote is

    “Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”
