Friday Afternoon Dance Party: Good Feeling   1 comment

It’s a high school dance. Not a particularly special one–just a random weekend night sometime between homecoming and prom. The debate team needed to raise funds, so they hired a DJ, charge five bucks at the door, and another dollar for a dixie cup of warm, flat coke from a two-liter.

You were at a school event earlier, and came with a couple of friends. You’re dancing in a group with a few other people, some vague notion of partners present. Some are established couples; you’re dancing with a girl you kinda know because you sit kinda near her in Civics. As near as you can remember, that’s the only class you have ever had in common.

After two or three dances, some sense of chemistry is there. Not quite sure if it’s the music, the night, exposure to aforementioned established couples or simply being a teenager. So, when the music shifts to a slow song to end the night, dancing closely with her doesn’t seem anything but the thing to do.

The whole group will walk out to the parking lot together, chat for a bit, and split off. Monday morning will come, and you’ll go back to being somewhat aware of her in Civics class. Until then, it will seem magical to you, and you’ll choose to believe it was mutual.

Not exactly autobiographical.

  1. Nice. Never EVER happened to me (I went alone; I dance alone; I left alone) but it’s nice to think someone else’s night went like that!
