Sweet Child O’ Mine

August 6, 2010

I have been busy. Finally unpacking the apartment? Don’t be silly! Getting my six-pack back? Already there, baby. Turtle farming? I wish.

Nope, I have been busy looking on YouTube for videos of Axl Rose dancing, and not for the usual, suspect reasons.

Well then, why? We’re on vacation among many adoring relatives and friends, and in the lap of love and fun, Henry has developed a new style of dance. It reminds me of someone or something, and part of me thinks it’s something I’ve seen Axl Rose do. Not the nearly naked gyrating Sweet Child O’ Mine dance, but, here, try this:

Picture Axl Rose in green plaid Gymboree overalls with no shirt, for a moment. Strip away the muscles, the tan, the attitude, and the kerchief, and there is lovely little Henry, standing with feet planted wide, collapsing one knee and then the other, in a brand new hilarious rocker dance that he made up.

I can’t find footage of Axl doing this, though. Not sure what I am thinking of.

    Maybe that silly Evian ad with the babies doing rollerblade tricks? That ad kind of creeps me out, but I kind of love it, too.
