Dance Like A Chicken Day
May 14, 2011 by staff
When I moved to the role of the vacation planner, I had my own set of rules. # 1-We would like to enjoy the journey. Should not be part of the memories? # 2-We want to be spontaneous. We live in a time all the time. I do not want my vacation schedule. # 3 it would, I repeat, does not eat at some chain restaurant. I’ve always liked to try all the local flavors and some of the best were usually off the beaten path.
One of my most memorable vacations was when my son was about six or seven years and was enjoying the beaches of Panama City. We relax on the beach, played in the ocean. We relaxed on the couches, which played in the pool. We enjoyed the terrace, which played in the bathtub. Yes, my son was born fish that did not get from me, as I absolutely hate getting wet. You can imagine my horror to discover that there was a pirate ship in the area. Trust me, I tried everything to get to try something else, but nothing to do until he became a pirate.
When we got the pirate ship, we were greeted by Captain Andy, in his group of pirates, including an eye patch, a sword and a bottle of (false) of rum. I said that I would get wet and enjoy the entertainment and the cruise.
Therefore, I held my breath, walked the plank and I found a spot on the top floor where I could see Captain Andy and her calf entertain the kiddos. They painted their faces, gave them pirate hats and a piece of “gold” to take home. They played and sang songs, but my favorite thing they did was the “Chicken Dance.” It was hilarious to see all these kids trying to keep up with the “She-Pirates” doing all the snap of the fingers, flapping, twisting down / up and clapping. And then, when accelerated, little boys could hardly keep up. JoJo probably would not be caught dead doing the chicken dance today, but I remember the dancer cutest pirate chicken I had ever seen.
This is probably going to embarrass know that I told the world that he did the chicken dance on a pirate ship. Think of how uncomfortable it would be if I saw mommy doing the chicken dance! (Quick, quick, quick, quick, flaps, flap, flap, flap, and spin down and then up, clap, clap, and clap clap).
Saturday, May 14 is “Dance Like A Chicken Day” so be sure to put that on your calendar.
Now that we’ve been talking about the “Chicken Dance”, which will have this melody in your head for the rest of the day. Do not forget to do the motions!
