Some very aerobic teaching was required during the big thunderstorm this afternoon. The preschoolers were freaking and sobbing. I had to be the clown, the stand-up comedian, and the NFL dancer, while doing the usual waitress/storytime lady/art teacher routine. Got the kids to yell, "Good one!", and do a fist pump/disco bump for loud thunder, and an endzone celebration dance for the really impressive ones. Then they started yelling, "Wimpy one!", and "Pretty good, but try harder!" We played air guitar to Buddy Holly, and danced a Mexican hat dance to Putomayo World Music. Thank heaven I didn't have to sing, "My hat, it has three corners; three corners has my hat." That is scarier than thunder.
