At the Christmas Party Sock Hop
C (as she rocks around the Christmas tree): “Rockin’ around the Christmas tree, at the Christmas party hop…” Daddy, is that girl singing about a sock hop?
D (irritated by dark, tangled strings of lights): Could be.
C: Have you gone to a sock hop?
D: No, I can’t say that I have. Sock hops were way before my time. They were in the fifties.
C: But, you are forty-six.
C (adding insult to irritation): So that’s almost fifties, right?
