Don’t Just Stand There. Bust a Move.

Over Thanksgiving, my nephew taught some of us how to do this dance:



I played the part of the audience. It looked really fun.

So fun, in fact, that yesterday, while I was waiting for dinner to finish simmering, I came upstairs and spent a good fifteen minutes looking up the instructions on how to properly dance to “Crank Dat.” I found them. I practiced for a little bit. I should mention that I was high on cold medicine.

I still might try to learn, even though I attend no clubs, even though I am in my thirties, even though I don’t have a best friend Pedro who might need me to bust out my moves when he runs for student class president. It’s good for a person to surprise themselves.

Oh man, we got suckered into providing the music and sound system for a dance at the school for kids age 9-13. This was their favorite song and dance. We played it several times. And then afterwards someone told me that the lyrics were really dirty. What do I know? I didn't understand anything they were saying!

Does it greatly reduce my cool factor if I attempt to do it while holding my rack steady because I'm in my jammies and didn't put on a sports bra? And also I am in my 40s and my roots are showing?

Yeah. But IN MY head, I am so cool!

I've never heard this song before. Does that make me uncool? I know the electric slide. And the Macarena. Doesn't that count for anything?

My 13 year old daughter taught me the dance. Then my 20 year old niece told me what a "Superman" is. It sort of ruined the whole, "I think I'm a cool mom" feeling I had. Google it.
