Crazy dancer

January 26th, 2011

I wish I had as much energy as a three-year-old. One evening after work, when my parents had come to visit, we were all sitting around just being old and tired. We, being my husband, my parents, and me.

Olivia started dancing around wiggling her butt. Naturally, when a little kid gets any kind of positive reaction, they keep going, so our initial laughter prompted her to dance around the living room for some 15 minutes. She was shaking her booty and acting all crazy and laughing, while we laughed with her.

I decided to tease my mother, who is a retired professional dancer. "Wow, Mom. Who taught her how to dance? Did she get that from you?"

She looked at me and laughed. "Heavens, no." Then she went in for the kill. "She's so full of energy, too. She couldn't have gotten that from you."

Touche, Popo.
