Twist and Shout

Just as I was about to say, “See you later, alligator” to mom at Circle Center this morning (the hottest little adult daycare spot on this planet), someone announced it was exercise time.

Well, needless to say, mom was ready to rock ‘n roll and I was able to catch her solo act on video as she started to work it on out to her own beat.

She was finished about the time everyone else started, so she just put herself on rewind and kept on going long after her impromptu kick start.

She looked like the Energizer Bunny on steroids!

While I was videoing mom, I started singing to myself, “Well, shake it up, baby, now (shake it up, baby) …”

The best part of this whole little slice of life video is when mom hugs herself for a job well done and then looks up at me and shouts out, “I wuv ya.”

That’s what it’s all about.

Shake it up, baby, now (shake it up baby): twist and shout (twist and shout)  …

You rock, girl! You are a genuine, one of a kind, rock star!

Well, shake it up, baby, now, (shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout. (twist and shout)
Cmon cmon, cmon, cmon, baby, now, (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out. (work it on out)
