100 Words: Act Your Age

2012-10-19 flash mobMy friend Kate and I led three flashmobs in Charlottesville (see them here and here and here).

Once we made a YouTube video of me doing the choreography in Kate’s kitchen so people could learn it and join in.

Someone commented that I looked stupid in my polka-dotted pants and I was too old to be dressing like that.

I must have had some of those voices in my head, since at first it hurt my feelings.

But then Kate turned off the comments on YouTube and I turned off the comments in my head.

What comments are you listening to?

  1. One of my heroes, Fred Rogers said “We’re not just the age we are now. We’re all the ages we’ve ever been.” I love that and live by that letting all my ages dance! Keep on rockin’ Susan!
