DANCE LIKE NO-ONE’S WATCHING
School holidays are upon us here in NSW and after spending the first week sitting around looking at my two kids, and them looking back at me, we were ready for a road trip.
You know, when you have to have a change of environment to reboot. Reboot your brain, reboot your relationship with your kids and reboot the need to make the most of the takeaway options of a small seaside town down the South Coast.
Kids are packed to the rafters in the car and me and my mate Ness are in the front. We have the obligatory packet of jelly snakes which we intermittently hand back over the seat to the kids in the back, to reward them for good behaviour.
For bad behaviour, we throw one out the window. I know. I am saving for their therapy.
I stumbled across a really cool and daggy radio station who offered us some auditory wonderment with such examples as the Bee Gees, The Proclaimers, Bon Jovi, The Eagles, AC (zig zag symbol) DC and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody which we sang at the top of our lungs, while hollering at the children to listen to us sing every word.
It was during this that I insulted Ness by saying that she looked just like my mum whilst driving and singing. And this was because she was making up the words and doing the “Old lady shoulder shrug”.
The “old lady shoulder shrug” is done like this, when standing.
Place your feet about 50cm apart and bend your knees slightly. Now hold your arms closely to the side and stick your hands out like a penguin. Next, move your shoulders up and down with the music and laugh a lot. Like my mum does. It is awesome entertainment. Even better at Christmas when the movements are enhanced by a bottle of riesling.
It is the complete opposite to the “Awkward Man Dancer” who shows no joy in his movements.
