At the end of Part 04 of this series, I said it ain’t over until the fat lady sings, which wouldn’t happen until Part 05. Unfortunately, the fat lady has yet to show (something must be holding her up), so I’ll have to put Part 05 on hold. Meanwhile….

If you’re not having any fun, what’s holding you back? It’s good to let loose. For example….

….and Dance Around in Your Bones.

Think dancing sans skin is a stretch? Mark my words — stranger things have happened:

Getting back to the fat lady, I can feel it in my bones that she’ll show up soon — hopefully, in skin and singing. After all, who ever heard it’s not over until the fat lady dances (the very thought sends shivers down my spine). Verily, the future end of this series hangs in the balance. Give me (Post) five.

  1. I’m looking forward to some fat lady singing, but it will be sad to see/hear this series end. It’s been fun. 🙂

    I am my own Grandpa is priceless.

    Since “fortune favors the bold” I say go for it with the Fat Lady in part 5. And remember in New York “it ain’t over till it’s over”, Fat Lady or not.

    Don, your comment made me curious about which came first: “It ain’t over till it’s over” or “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.” Turns out the Yankees’ Yogi Berra said the former in 1973 and a Texas sports information director first said the latter in 1976. But Yogi also said he never said everything he said, though I’m pretty sure he really did say what he said when he said it ain’t over till it’s over.

    That reminds me of when General Sherman learned he’d said. “War is all hell!” because he hadn’t said it. But he liked it so he kept saying it till he said it.

    You might have led off with Chicago’s “All That Jazz”? Ah, I remember in little country school our teacher had a record of Spike Jones and we loved listening over and over. Ha. Yep, memories. Great dancing in the “skin”!

    Apparently I attended the wrong schools, Mark — I don’t remember listening to records where I went to school. But I definitely like both the song and the dancing in the “skin” clip.
