More Dancing, Less Sewing, or WTH?
Another dance tonight---that makes 2 per week. Yesterday I stayed in, watched a marathon of NCIS, my current favorite TV show, and worked on the Heart's A Flutter shell. It's almost finished and I hope to wear it to my ASG meeting tomorrow night. Meanwhile, back to the dance and the WTH (or, what the heck?). I really got back into ballroom for a number of reasons, the major one being exercise. I started by doing a friend a favor. Rob is going through a divorce and, because he was a dear friend of my late husband I decided he should not sit home and mope. Besides, he's a good dancer. So I introduced him to a girlfriend who is interested in dancing and goes to a lot of them. I decided to tag along to see how my skills have languished. I assumed because I'm an overweight, white-haired woman I would sit on the sidelines and watch. Imagine my astonishment to find that several old friends I used to dance with are still going to these things, and I actually get asked to dance often enough that my feet hurt tonight! One old buddy I ran into tonight said we looked like spring chickens next to some of the people there. I actually danced with a man that I'm looking forward to seeing again---because he flew 26 missons over Germany during WWII. Yes, I guess I'm pretty young for some of the group, lol.
