And because I'm such a perfectionist (read: computer-challenged), I've had to work long and hard and long and long to get the playlists for the show just right. Blasting disco music through the house has produced some seriously fantastic and hilarious dance moves and occasionally some bleeding eardrums and sore hip joints. It brings our favorite neighbor friend Ben dancing in through the back door, hitting some poses before he even gets all the way in. It gets Jonathan's groove thing twitching. It gets Rob to put on freaky wigs and walk around with peace sunglasses on. And it gets Brady to moan "Mooommmm, it's so LOOOUUUDDDDDD!" As for me, well, I've never sung so much Andy Gibb.
It seems we've got a little disco/hippie/70's obsession going on in our house. Jonathan channeled John Revolta, er I mean Travolta, for 70's Day at theatre camp and has been getting a good workout as he shakes his groove thing. Despite actually being an 80's child, I get to embrace my inner hippie at our annual Willow event each year. And Rob's been getting funkadelic with his new 'fro.
And then there's Brady. Brady tends to morph into non-70's characters. Like Brady-Man. And sometimes he goes a little James Bond on us. I like a boy who dares to be different. Despite our heaviest pressure that he must be all-things-'70's right now, he dares strike out on his own.
Let's sing a song about it, shall we? C'mon, sing with me!
One of these things is not like the others
One of these things just doesn't belong
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn't belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others
Then you're absolutely...right!
