Dancing!

Beware: the following post is rated EEE for a surfeit of vowels, run-on sentences, exclamation points, and incoherent excitement.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went dancing!!!!!!! Not club dancing, but swing dancing at a club and I haven't danced since college, and even then I only took a semester's worth of classes. But I learned some basic lindy hop and basic Charleston and remembered some basic swing and there was a band and my partner was an awesome lead who was very patient with me and EEEEEEEEE I had so much fun!

And oh, I felt sort of awkward at first because I didn't know anyone except my coworker's friend (said partner) and again, I have only taken about a semester's worth of dance, but oh, it was so fun and the music was awesome and there was a giant bass and piano and a trumpet and a sax and swing music and a humongous floor! And everyone was dancing! And there wasn't a surfeit of women! And even when I wasn't dancing and was just ogling, it was so cool to see all the women in capris and tank tops or skirts and saddle shoes or who knows what else, all of them moving with this wonderful style!

So going again!

Dancing! YAY!
