This is Mabel. She is at a dance hall doing the twist. There is a Big Band behind her. The band came down the street in the rain and had a gay old time. Mabel danced down the street with them. I bet that was a trip.
Her skirt got wet and shrunk. She's wearing a bikini underneath it. That takes a lot of hutzpa, especially when it's cold.
At the end of the parade there was hot cocoa. That's good in this kind of weather. It helps to warm you up.
They figure they want to dance somemore. Mabel may have had one drink too many before her husband came to meet her. If she hadn't had a drink she might have known that her skirt shrunk in the rain.
She looks a little old to be dancing like that, but some people just like to show off like that, especially for the gentlemen. But you are never to old to dance if you feel like it. Maybe she just looks too old to be wearing a skirt that short. Teenagers are the only ones who can do that.
If it's cold and icy you wouldn't want to wear a skirt like that because the cold air comes right up through it. Besides, if you slip and fall your bottom would get cold. If you slip into a gutter you could freeze to death.

By the way, we think she should have had a jacket over that short skirt!
