“Just throw your hands in the air and wave them like you just don’t care!”
In the 80s, we heard this phrase a lot on the radio. I don’t know why, but it was in a lot of songs.
But now when I think back on it, the people who did throw their hands in the air . . . they did it like they did care. If you waved them like you just didn’t care, you should have an ambivalent look on your face. You should wave them half-heartedly like you are thinking “I don’t even know if I should bother doing this.” Like any second, you are just going to put your hands back down– because who can be bothered?
Anyway, it made sense at the time, I guess.
Now, everybody say “Oh, yeah!”
