Bah! This morning has already started off with a BANG!
I hopped on FB real quick for my morning fix and scrolled down the newsfeed to stalk the people I never really talk to nor will I ever talk to, but that's beside the point. Well about 4 different people all posted the same video of the new Kia Soul commercial and I just about died in my seat!
This has basically been the song of the Summer, particularly the song of EFY. I actually started shufflin' before I ever heard the song (as a counselor, your knowledge of the latest and greatest becomes quite impaired) because all my kids were shufflin' ALL. THE. TIME. Well, I finally saw the video (the original which if you for some reason have not seen yet, you may click here.) and I fell in love.
Later that summer, I ended up rooming for the week with a counselor named Michael Von Forell. He seemed quiet at first, but we finally bonded over the power of shufflin'. You see, every Friday night at EFY is the notorious lockdown. Basically, the counselors have to stay up til o-dark hundred to make sure that the kids don't do anything stupid on the last night of life without parents. Pretty much, it's the most boring night of your life... that is unless you are Michael and Cameron. We watched that music video til our eyes were bloodshot and we proceeded to shuffle barefoot on that terrible commercial carpet for nearly 3 hours straight. We shouldn't have done it for that long, but our BC (the head counselor dude that was over us) decided to "forget" to text us saying that we were free to go to bed. But don't you worry, we kept ourselves busy. Other counselors would walk by and sometimes join in on the fun while others would just stare at us wondering why in the world we were so hopped up on that could give us the energy to do so after a week of sleeplessness.
Well, with our faces were dripping and our feet on the brink of bleeding, but we were amused, exhausted, and happy. Oh, and since that epic night, everyday we're shufflin'!
