So...one late night, "the dude" and I were "walked-in on" by our daughter. Luckily, it wasn't too bad, but she did still ask, "whatcha doing?" in her innocent 3 year old voice. Because obviously, we weren't sleeping. Before I could even register what was happening, "the dude" calmly says, "We were doing the Chicken dance." (O_o)
