This is for all the people who ever met me and said, “You were a baton twirler? You don’t seem like that type.” The underlying message, as I choose to take it, is that I’m not actually ditzy and brain dead, and I don’t obsess over manicures and fashion (which reminds me of something else I want to write about: Is Coldwater Creek an “old lady store” as my children have declared? Perhaps I shall explore this topic more deeply tomorrow).
So, you know, I don’t know what message they were actually trying to teach the kiddos with this video (*snort*), but what I take from it is a long overdue message of tolerance: majorettes are intelligent people, too.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt is rockin’ the sequins.
