My entourage included my Darling Little Girl, my Precious Mama, my Lovely Sister, and my Aunt. Last year’s Sock Hop was truly about making memories for my family. My Aunt was suffering from breast cancer and this was the last outing she had before cancer took her life only a few short weeks later. I will always cherish the night we had. Even though all she could do was sit in the chair as an onlooker, I know her heart was full. Her voice was almost non-existent but with her faint whisper she would tell us, “Go Dance.” She didn’t want us sitting around just because she couldn’t get up there with us. She wanted to enjoy watching us and I am so glad she did.
I don’t think I have ever had so much fun with the women in my family. My daughter had an absolutely wonderful time dancing all around with us and her friends, playing Limbo, eating candy, taking pictures, and trying Coke floats. I quickly learned that my body was no longer a Limbo champion. I could barely get down there like I used to do. All you locals that hung out at the Holiday Skate Palace every Friday night when you were younger know exactly what I am talking about!!
