The Joyful Jig: How I Celebrated the Best News Ever with a Dance, a Selfie, and a Legendary Blog Post

You get some great, amazingly fantastic news. What’s the first thing you do?

Oh, the first thing I do? Well, let me paint you a picture. There I was, sitting in my fortress of solitude (also known as my office, adorned with dual monitors and enough LEDs to guide a small plane to landing), when suddenly, the news hits. Not just any news, mind you, but the kind of news that makes you question if you’ve accidentally stumbled into a parallel universe where everything goes right for you. The kind of news that makes you feel like you’ve just discovered you’re the long-lost heir to a fortune made entirely of vintage video games and rare computer parts.

So, what’s the first thing I do? I leap from my throne (an ergonomic chair that’s seen better days), narrowly avoiding a catastrophic entanglement with my headphone cord—a maneuver that would impress even the most seasoned of acrobats. With the grace of a cat (or at least a very determined penguin), I land on the plush fortress flooring (okay, it’s just a regular carpet, but work with me here).

My heart racing, my mind buzzing with the electric joy of my good fortune, I do what any self-respecting adult in the 21st century would do—I reach for my phone to share this monumental event. But wait! Not so fast. This news, this gloriously fantastic news, deserves more than just a hastily typed text or a social media post drowned in a sea of cat videos and political memes. No, this news demands… a victory dance.

Yes, you read that right. In the sacred tradition of all great celebrations, I unleash a victory dance that would make the stars weep (or at least make my neighbors question what exactly goes on in my house). Picture, if you will, a dance composed of the Macarena, the Moonwalk, and something that might have been a tango if it hadn’t gone so horribly awry. It’s a dance of pure, unadulterated joy—a physical manifestation of my exhilaration.

Breathless and possibly a bit dizzy, I finally grab my phone, not to call someone, but to set the scene for the most epic selfie of all time. The backdrop? My command center, where all my blogging and computing magic happens. The expression? A mix of surprise, delight, and a hint of “did I really just dance like that?” Yes, this selfie, destined to become the stuff of legend, will accompany my announcement to the world.

And then, only then, after capturing this moment for all eternity, do I sit down to craft the perfect blog post. A post that will regale my readers with the tale of my fantastic news, embellished with all the humor and wit at my disposal. Because when life hands you news this good, the first thing you do is make sure you can laugh about it, share it, and immortalize it in the annals of your personal history. Or at least, that’s what I do.

In the land of bytes and bits, a father of three sits,With a heart for tech and coding kits, in IT he never quits.At Magna's door, he took his stance, in Canada's wide expanse,At Karmax Heavy Stamping - Cosma's dance, he gave his career a chance.With a passion deep for teaching code, to the young minds he showed,The path where digital seeds are sowed, in critical thinking mode.But alas, not all was bright and fair, at Magna's lair, oh despair,Harassment, intimidation, a chilling air, made the workplace hard to bear.Management's maze and morale's dip, made our hero's spirit flip,In a demoralizing grip, his well-being began to slip. So he bid adieu to Magna's scene, from the division not so serene,Yet in tech, his interest keen, continues to inspire and convene.
