As I mentioned yesterday, the Hoopers had us over for Kathleen’s 91st birthday party last Saturday.
Kathleen is not your typical grandma. She is the embodiment of “spunk.”
And so I guess it shouldn’t have surprised us that when we went inside and started to play Just Dance 2 on Wii, she would not just want to watch us playing but would want to try it out herself.
No kidding. This is what it looks like when a 91 year-old-lady dances on her birthday to “It’s Raining Men.” I love it.
You may be wondering about her hat. It was left over from her St. Patrick’s Day/ Mardi Gras celebrating. And she was wearing it because she felt like it. I love that. It’s a green cowboy hat with purple feathers on the rim. =)
She is so awesome.
Her thoughts on Just Dance? “We used to dance with people. I like having somebody to hold onto,” she told me. “We danced with each other and did different dances. This is too much like exercise.”
I’m with Kathleen. I wish it was still typical for everyone to know various forms of dance. I’d love to go out dancing somewhere and everyone (including me) know how to do swing dance, tango, and the waltz.
But since we don’t, I’m glad to see her adapt to current dance styles! Shake it like yo grandma!
