Yes, friends, we are participating in a flash mob on the 4th and we are excited and also a bit apprehensive. We have 2 practices this week and we'll be performing to Born in the USA! I am stoked and a little nervous about it but my little girl is looking forward to it. I've only seen it done on Modern Family and that phone commercial so it's a good thing I can laugh at myself. [I just watched the Modern Family flash mob scene again and am feeling embarrassed in advance for myself.]
When I was doing Zumba classes a while back I spent a great deal of the time laughing (for increased heart rate, no?) and I had a great time. Have to remember that instead of focusing on the beady eyes in the crowd. Right after I signed up I had a (mob?) flashback to the 9th grade PE when all of us girls were learning a dance to try out for Pom. It was set to Gloria. I had fun dancing but I never had the nerve to actually try out. I don't think I could have hacked the pressure so I went out for the swim team instead (where I couldn't hack the pressure either). Actually I LOVED swimming and practicing but when we had to compete, I was like a small dog in a thunderstorm with the nerves. I could not stand the sound of the starting gun and I was the one with all of the false starts... *sigh, good times*
**Update: I harvested some lavender tonight and found some twist ties and leftover ribbon from my high school reunion (Go Tigers!) and Emi and I created some magic Lavender Wands. We have enough lavender that we might make a few for gifting. I'll probably put mine in the linen closet...
