Mummy, I’m a tryhard.
The immortal words Kelly uttered on a video camera in the 90s, to be repeated over and over again through the ages. Since I really enjoyed embarassing my punk sister yesterday I thought I’d do it again for my youngest sister. Especially since I owe her for the “fun with photos” post she did on her site.
So, fresh from the scanner comes…
Kelly the spangly dancer!
Look at that hair, look at the purple leopard skin print, look at the well pointed jazz ballet shoes. Jon Benet Ramsey would be proud.
Truth be told though, Kelly and Katie were both good dancers. Especially after seeing superstar Madonna our Auntie up on stage dancing to John Cougar Mellencamp’s version of Rave On. I never lived up to my mothers Hollywood mum ideal – she called me a dancing elephant. Then she wondered why I didn’t like ballet. You’d never see me in a pink leotard again. I was more the tennis playing, rugby tackling type daughter. Just the way I liked it.
