seriously. it’s in my top ten lists of things to start happening at a party. i especially enjoy when i get to play (swing dance) and i get to make mistakes but also be surprisingly good (i construct a narrative as i dance). i love dancing. i didn’t capitalize my “i”s. this is just to say.
I walked indoors from our balcony to find Teek and Ryan figuring out some swing choreography on our house’s newly organized dance floor. I love swing dancing. It requires each participant to share responsibilities, just like they’re singing a duet. I romanticize their efforts: they have to share the embarrassment of messing up; they get to enjoy the perfection of getting each step right.
