All That Jazz

The children (mostly Sam) now have me playing the guitar at least twice a week. Sam always wants to do "The Mookie Mookie Mookie Song." It's a simple song that basically involves me playing while they dance around like epileptics at a rave. Then, I'll stop playing suddenly and they'll freeze in place. Then I'll start again and the fits continue.

This fine example of energetic self-expression has led to other dances as well. Usually, after doing "The Mookie Mookie Mookie Song," Sam will want to do "The Mookie Mookie Mookie Girl Dance." This dance involves no less than three distinct moves (the moves change each time) which Sam demonstrates before the dance begins. Then, once the music starts, she quickly forgets her well-thought-out choreography and regresses into "The Mookie Mookie Mookie Dance."

A few minutes later it will be time for "The Mookie Mookie Mookie Boy Dance." More choreography, more forgetting choreography, more flailing and freezing.

It's a beautiful thing.
