Two weeks ago at WWII Remembered we were given some information about a dance in a town roughly an hour and half distant from us. Well, Savannah followed up and it was decided, the three of us girls would be going to a dance Saturday evening!
Well and good. Then the usual disaster struck.
I thought I knew what I was going to wear. Then I didn't. Thankfully, I didn't go into one of those "I hate clothes!" rants that have been far too frequent in my past. Mama loaded her middle kid into the car and drove to the Goodwill. It was the 50% off EVERYTHING day and EVERYONE and their neighbor was there. However, we found a dress. Amazing, right? (Providence again, you see.)
It required a shirt under it for modesty sake, but I think it turned out just fine...even though it was a wee bit long. (I only stepped on it twice though, so it wasn't bad at all.)
Savannah wanted to go a different way than I had us planned...so when we messed up my route, we decided to try her's...and that didn't work. As I put it to Mr. R (the gentleman who informed us of the dance to begin with), "We took my route in the end--with a detour."
We thought we were going to be late. I was in a state of angst which was quickly relieved when we arrived and we really weren't late.
And we danced. During the pre-supper set, we were all asked to dance by the young men. Afterwards, not so much. I started switching off sisters to ensure they got danced with (and I got to dance). As usual when I do that, I landed myself in then gent's line. One of them remarked at some point that that threw him off a little. (My words, his gist.) It just made me laugh.
Despite the decline in gentlemen's attention, we all had a lovely time and look forward to the next time...whenever that is. :) While it is pleasant to dance with a gent, I love to dance so much that I enjoy it even when I pair up with another lady. :)
We headed home as other folks were doing so and ended up going home differently yet! We got "lost" but thanks to maps and cellphones that one can use like a flash-light, we got home!
I was downright exhausted...
