Bouncy Bouncy Fun Fun Fun!

With the holiday meaning a lazy day of sleeping in, going to see the Corteo demo downtown, lunch with Rick and Christyn, some housekeeping, an hour or so of actual work, and finally running an errand, I headed up to the Plough, jumping off from home at 7:52. I got there in just under 45 minutes. This is not ordinarily possible. Not by a mile. I folded space. This was just the start of a lovely evening. I danced. I danced every dance save one "dance for everyone" (Seige of Ennis - run away!!!). This gave me just enough time to run to the necessary before dancing myself senseless including calling a polka set. I introduced myself to the one unfamiliar face in the set and others explained I was one of the old ones, to which I agreed that yes, I've been doing this for a dozen years, and I've still got knees! Yay!

At the end of the reel-a-thon, I wasn't tired. My muscles weren't aching. I asked if we'd missed something. We hadn't. This morning I wasn't sore. So though I'm overweight - nay, obese according to our federal government - I'm in pretty good shape physically. Sure, I'd like to lose 20 pounds, but only if I can keep all the muscle and cardiovascular endurance.
