Two-stepping on a Saturday night
You may think we're hip and happening, but we really don't hit the clubs very often. Last night, we had fun though. And a lot of it was watching the other dancers.
My Perfect Moment was watching one young couple. We were at a country bar that mixed up R&B, hip-hop, funk, pop, and country. My favorite moment was watching one very young couple dressed in what, back in the day, we would've called Goth: both in tight black T-shirts, black cargo shorts, dyed black hair, lots of tattoos.
I noticed them slip-sliding around the floor to some techno song and when it was over, they stayed to do a little Texas two-step with the rest of them.
They fell into step with all the Country Western dancers: Step forward, Touch, Step backward, Touch, Walk Walk, Flip that straight black hair. Just perfect.
