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.
