It's been ten days since Hubby Tony started his100-day retirement countdown. I tried to think how we could celebrate the event, and a Google search led me to a song from 1976 called "Ten Percent" by the band Double Exposure. (Get it? Ten days is ten percent of 100.)
I had never heard the song before, but Wikipedia
told me that it peaked at No.2 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart, No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 63 on the Hot Soul Singles chart. The infectious beat was similar to many of the songs they played when I went out dancing regularly, and the lyrics were airy but cute.
When Tony announced he was off work I forwarded the song's video to him. It took him a second to realize its significance, then he grinned and started the video. For three minutes we danced around his office like we were back in our teens.
