Hips don't lie

There is no escape from Shakira's video and it is on, all the time, on various music channels. Many see it as 'dirty dancing'.I love the way she moves.

My children are amused that I actually admire her dance.

"Yuck mama--How can you like her?" they echo in chorus.

"But look at her dance.Can you do that?" I ask.

My nine year old listened to the lyrics.(and he doesnt know Spanish)Then he says

"Does Shakira have a mouth on her hips?"

He claims he was trying to make me laugh.I did.
It took me 10 seconds to figure it out.
And I continue to smile when I think of it.

  1. I've been totally fascinated by this video since I first saw it! My boys didn't mind the song, but they couldn't stand the idea that I liked it -- it makes me want to dance, and that just mortifies them :) I look NOTHING like Shakira!!!)

  2. My girls call her the caterpillar woman because of how she moves. They, like me, are fascinated by her dancing.

  6. I love dance and the freedom of movement a good dancer conveys..physical abillity when honed and perfected like this or ballet etc is a very echo of our deepest instincts.

  8. Somehow there are certain things you just can't expect men to notice in that video. The quality of dancing for instance. Which is why reading your blog is such an education...
