But lest you think I have completely caved and been reconverted, let's just look at a few of the finer details, shall we?
I actually danced four times. Once was the requisite "Electric Slide". WAY too much like exercise. I had to rest after that.
Point #1: I resent being lumped socially into a group that includes folks older than my mother.
Upon comparison of notes with my friends, dancing with this gentleman follows the same conversational lines no matter who you are or how many times he's danced with you previously.
Second dance was with someone I met at the Social Gathering at my Dear New Friend's house. He's a very animated and adventurous dancer, and it was quite enjoyable.
As I looked around I saw several faces I recognized from the dances I used to attend 7 or 8 years ago.
Point #2: the group has not changed or evolved, it's just getting older.As am I, as my feet and legs and respiratory rate let me know after the "Electric Slide".
Point #3: someone with actual dance ability should choose the music.
There was, of course, also the Usual Cast of Characters:
The Ballroom Dance Couple:
The Fancy Two-Step Couple:
REALLY Old Guy:
Latin guy, white pants, sports coat, ladies' man. 'Nuff said.
The Polygamist Dancers:
Might I be tempted to return? Tempted...not really. Talked into it again by the girls?
