Putting the Time into TikTok

“It’s just fun, c’mon!” She was trying to get me to do one of the TikTok dances that rotate in and out according to newness and popularity. I was intrigued about the platform, but wasn’t sure I was ready to add yet another social media time suck to my life.

But here I was plodding through moves I had never seen, much less attempted, to music I didn’t know, and really didn’t like. But hey, all in the name of trying to stay relevant with your own kid, right? Thrust, kick, swivel, and step left. Right into a mother/daughter connection.
