The Walk of Wiggle Shame

There is a new rule in Casa de Haggis. If you find yourself singing a Wiggles song when not actively and intentionally engaged with a child you have to run around the dining room table with your fingers in the L shape, singing "I'm a Loser" to the tune of Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car. "Toot Toot chugga chugga I'm a loser; I'm a loser near and a loser fa-a-a-r; toot toot chugga chugga I'm a loser, I'm a loser the whole day long..."

This draconian measure was implemented when it became clear that certain adults were finding themselves quietly singing, "Get Ready to Wiggle" long after The Bambina was asleep, while cooking dinner. This state of affairs could not be tolerated and corrective, public-shaming measures were enacted, hence the Loser Laps around the table.

Further public shaming measures are being considered in light of the Baby Daddy's question, "But is it okay to have Wiggles thoughts?"

Gimme three laps, ya big loser!

ps--perhaps we should develop a persona for a fifth wiggle. We'll name him Loser Wiggle and he'll wear the khaki colored shirt and his special talent will be drooling.

Uh-oh. That ps just earned me five laps...

There is nothing better than saying goodbye to your father then sharing a bunch of wiggles songs as a family :) JP would be laughing at us all sitting in my house sing all together (kids and grandkids) the wiggles songs...
