Trippy

14May12

Hey Howdy Partners, just back from the deep West South-West where I attended my sisters’ commitment ceremony to her partner Becky, both shown here doing a lovely spin on the dance floor.

It was Country-Western night for the ladies bachelorette party (does that even make sense?) and it was great fun.

I learned a lot this fine evening.

I learned I am not very good at line dancing, whether it is the Electric Slide or Country-Western.

I am also apparently a (mostly) terrible dance partner, but I had a lot of challenges: 1. I was not leading. 2. The woman I was dancing with had a much clearer idea of what the dance was and what I was supposed to be doing. 3. It was one of those dances where the “leader” and “follower” don’t face each other but face in the same direction, with the “leader” behind the “follower”. 4. There was a large mirror in which I attempted to figure out what I was doing right, further confusing me. 5. I can’t count dance steps after 4 (or 5?) drinks with tequila.

My dance partner graciously accepted the dance (more like she was goaded into dancing with The Straight Guy) and after instantly assessing that I was embarrassingly useless she calmly and firmly guided me straight off the dance floor.

I also learned that a ‘Gay’ bar is great fun, full of kind wonderful people having a great time dancing and socializing.

I recommend every straight person go at least once in their lives. Ask one of your gay friends to take you sometime.

Shot with a Nikon D3 and a Nikkor N 28mm f/2. Its pretty low light and the disco lights blew out the saturation but I like the feel of how this looks.
