Funny Story

I hope this story isn't one of those "you had to be there" kind of stories because this is so funny! This past Friday night, we were playing a board game with Emma and Dougie. The game is based on High School Musical, so throughout the game, you either had to sing or dance. On one of Emma's turn, drew a "secret talent" card, which meant she had to act out her talent and we had to try and guess it. She laid on the floor and began doing "the worm." Being 80's children, Steven and I yelled out, "You're break dancing." "No," she told us and she stayed on her stomach and continued to move on the floor. "You're swimming," I yelled. "No," she answered and continued these weird movements on the floor, all the while, staying on her stomach. At a complete loss of what she was trying to act out, we told her that we gave up. She jumped up and said, "I can't believe y'all didn't guess it. I was belly dancing!"

I laughed so hard that I cried and when I could finally speak, I tried to explain to her what belly dancing is. Now we're a little more culturally diverse in our dancing skills. Break dancing, belly dancing, it's all the same!
