Two New Year’s Eves ago, my boyfriend and I were partying with friends in a teeny apartment when talk turned to Dirty Dancing.
Next thing I knew, my boyfriend was standing at one end of the mini kitchen, arms braced, as my friend Helen catapulted herself gleefully towards him in an attempt to recreate that wonderful scene.
(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life may have been playing.
They totally nailed it — for about half a second, until my boyfriend tilted backwards and Helen’s head went straight into the fridge.
We all learned a lesson that night: Don’t drink and lift.
However, Baby herself, actress Jennifer Grey, says that actually, probably just don’t do it. Ever.
