"Singing in the Rain" song and dance

A Memory of Herbert by Charlene Yau posted on Mon, 9/8/08, 5:23 PM

 

I remember learning new song and dance routines from school or girl scout camp every year. When our parents would get together for dinner all of us girls (Michele, Judy, Alice, Bernice, anyone else?) would stick together like glue and usually locked ourselves in a bedroom. I think we usually was just talking girl talk, playing hide and seek, or organizing stickers and stationary. I had taught the girls a song and dance I learned just recently that had something to do with our thumbs and the song "Singing in the Rain". Our thumbs were sticking out, our elbows were tucked in, our knees were put together, our feet spread apart and our bottoms pushed out. Can you picture this? haha We performed it one night after dinner in Uncle Herbert and Auntie Lei's home. Auntie Lei actually annouced it with a welcoming introduction. The smiles on our parents faces was great encouragement to perform with more excitement but the laughter that filled the room would usually mess up our sequence. =)

I feel like Uncle Herbert had video recorded our performance that night and the thought of him probably gushing with pride made me feel really good. We all had such great childhoods from such incredible upbringing from our parents and also the influence from our family friends. Those were such good times... =)
