Lollipop, pop! Duh, dum, dum, dum.

My 8 year-old niece Taylor called me tonight and caught me off guard with, "Hi Aunt Susie, my mom told me that you know a dance to the lollipop song and I wanted to know if you would teach it to me for the talent show tryouts next month."

A brief awkward phone silence followed while I processed what she just said, realizing that she was serious . . .

Of course I do not know a dance to the 50s lollipop song. But of course I TOTALLY pretended like I did so I would not let Taylor down or sacrifice my cool aunt status.

"Oh Taylor, I would love to teach you and 2 friends my special lollipop dance for your tryouts!"


. . . Thanks Sis.

I can just picture you standing in front of your mirror "practicing" before they come to learn it....This is funny...

that has a dance to go with it? didn't a bunch of boring looking white women sing it? i guess if anyone can make it shimmy it would be you.

Perhaps a certain hula dance was what Jenny had in mind... Memories of kindergarten eh! :-)

HILARIOUS. I wish I could witness you teaching them your made up dance. Priceless

You don't remember the Lollipop dance? Must have been thinking of my other sister. I've seen your mad dancing skills, I know you'll pull through for me.
