Slow Dancing

I remember the 8th grade dance...most of the girls were just starting to get boobs, and of course, most of the guys were just starting to get whiskers. Our little school was pretty conservative, so all the girls got their best dresses on and the guys got ties on...but we just stood there. That was a million years ago, I know, but we sort of stood there staring at each about a Girls are from Venus and Guys are from Mars moment. We were just discovering a whole new species or something. Never mind the fact that we saw each other in the halls every day at school for the past 8 years, most of the girls wanted to cluster and talk...sort of looking over their shoulders at the guys doing the same thing. I guess I was one of the first...I was tall, so I asked one of the athletic girls(volleyball), if she wanted to dance. I remember thinking I don't know how to dance, but I'll give it a try....and we did. We sort of swayed back and forth...and it felt great....except we were both sort of awkward. Anyhow, I still think of that moment whenever I slow dance...I may not be the best dancer, but it still feels great. If you are really lucky, you might be good friends. Then again, there is a thrill in meeting total strangers, and dancing...and getting to know them. I guess I have come a long way since that 8th grade dance. Care to dance?
