I can't believe I'm going line dancing! My friend, Joanne convinced my other childhood buddy, Diane and me to try line dancing. She insisted it would be good exercise and fun.
I remember a party with all my teacher colleagues in Illinois where many of them got up to do a line dance. They tried to get me up with them, but the thought of looking like a klutz in front of everybody was too terrifying. Still, I envied the fun they seemed to be having.
Well, I just had my third lesson last night. Our teacher is 72 years old and full of energy so I imagine the dancing must be doing something good. She mentioned that line dancing is good for therapy and Alzheimers. That's good. That's very good because I have a feeling doing crossword puzzles alone is not going to do the job.
Well... I have this problem of a wandering mind. I'll be concentrating on the steps and do almost fine and then my mind starts thinking my body can handle it alone and would just go off by itself on some other thought. This is when I totally go out of whack and throw myself off as well as anybody looking at me. I've already warned everybody not to look at me in case I cause a pile up.
On the plus side, it's getting a little easier. On the other hand I realize that I have this problem with a brain that has trouble staying focused.
I now know that I can't look for a job in a chorus line. Then again, if I'm back in Illinois and everybody gets up to dance, who knows? Maybe I'll join them...
