I looked over and saw a group of musicians marching in large circles, playing their instruments and drawing a crowd to their small impromptu stage.

A small girl ran into the center and started dancing to the music. She couldn’t have been more than 5 years old.

She finished her set and everyone clapped for her as she ran off smiling with pride.

Her father then came out into the middle of the circle and performed “The Dougie.” He did it with more confidence than she did, but he didn’t put much more effort into it; he just shuffled his feet side to side while swinging his arms up and down. This time, though,
