i had so much fun going square dancing tonight. i went as a newcomer to this group called “el camino reelers,” and it was hella ballerrr. it was really easy to catch on to, plus i typically learn quickly anyways. by the time i got into the swing of it, i caught myself reminding even some of the regulars of the moves and rhythms.
the best part was that it was an lgbt group, so the roles were really fluid. i ended up switching partners about four times throughout the night, and i liked the partners i asked more and more as the night went on. by the end of the night, i was super happy with my last partner. square dancing is a really innocently touchy feely kind of dance, so it was really fun. plus i was the only one my age, so i felt a bit special.
there were also really awesome refreshments, and everyone was so nice, welcoming, and hospitable. it was in palo alto, but i was surprised some people had traveled from santa cruz or even monterey to get there just for it.
in addition, someone also gave me a 5×5 boggle game, cuz i love word games, so that was awesome too. i’ll be bringing that with me to santa cruz fasho.
