Let’s Prance!

Somehow ‘Prancercise’ has passed me by…

Not entirely sure what planet I’ve been living on but it’s 2017 and I’m only just discovering it thanks to nice bloke Spencer who guest blogs over at Zeit My Geist.

In case you’ve also been living on another planet for the past few years..

This is Prancercise.

First time I watched it I thought the moves were similar to the ones yer Nan makes on the dance floor when she wants to throw some shapes to Tom Jones’ It’s Not Unusual but her corns are giving her gyp and she has to be mindful of keeping her Tena pad in place.

Second time I watched it I thought she may be one HRT patch short of a full packet.

Third time I watched it I came to the conclusion that she’s a BLOODY LEGEND!

So, what’s it all about?

Basically…it’s horses.

My interpretation of what’s said on the website is that instead of standing in front of a huge gym window sweating your bag off you can go and gallop around the park like a horse. You know, like you did when you were a kid? I can see the appeal, sort of, only I’m more seaside donkey than graceful horse..

Unsurprisingly, Joanna (the creator) has copped for some stick.

Apparently it’s “goofy” and she showed ‘the toe’.

That’s camel toe if you were wondering and lets face it.. if you own leggings (and you’re female) you’ve probably shown the toe too.

So, I may have had a giggle but you know what? I LOVE the Joanna’s of this world because they make the world a better and more interesting place. Also, it’s made her famous. AS IF she gives a pig’s nip who’s laughing, eh?

I don’t think I’ll be prancing around our local park anytime soon because I live up North and they certify people for doing stuff like that round here. Prancing would definitely be frowned upon unless it involves lobbing black puddings about and then it’s absolutely fine.

How about a Strictly Come Prancing? Now THAT, I would watch!

However, I am having a nostalgic pang for the carefree days of childhood when I thought nothing of prancing because most children are natural prancers. Not that I was ever natural at anything aside being weird..but, yeah, I pranced – kind of.

What a shame that there comes a time when society decides it’s no longer appropriate to prance. 😦

Not that Joanna cares about what society thinks and I say good on her! The world needs more of this!

PRANCE ON, JOANNA, YOU UTTER LEGEND!
