The other day as I was getting ready for work, this song came on the radio. Before I knew it, there I was — performing the accompanying show choir moves I learned in middle school. 15 years ago.
I posted about it on Facebook, only to find out that I wasn’t the only former Generalette (of the Grant Middle School Generals & Generalettes, G&G for short) who still busted out these moves from time to time.
“Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” amuses my students just as much as it amused me back in the day. Sure, it’s corny and a little crude (I left out that second verse for good reason), but it’s a classic.
