Instead of being stuck with one awkward partner the whole time, we rotated every few minutes which was very refreshing. I was thankful for that because some of them had two left feet and others were pulling me super close and staring into my eyes... which is not how I want to meet a stranger. Other than a few odd moments, I had a lot of fun. Some guys picked it up so fast (or were already into Salsa) and I was being whirled and twirled and even dipped a couple times. I'm not going to say I'm the best dancer but I got into it after a while; also I had already learned the basics from Dave a few weeks ago so this was a good refresher.
I hope we looked a little something like this.
The amazing thing was that despite the fact I was wearing heels, my feet didn't hurt at all while dancing! After, however, I took my shoes off and walked barefoot back to my car and that was excruciating. I could feel my bones molding back to their normal shape after wearing heels for 9 hours at work and then another 2 and a half hours dancing. I just wanted to sit on the floor and wait for someone to come pick me up and carry me to the car, but alas, no one was in sight.
Once I crashed at home, I made a late night "breakfast" and then fell into bed. After days of insomnia, I finally slept through the whole night so I feel semi-amazing this morning. I even shaved my legs. Hallelujah. I'm looking forward to an evening of finding the last piece of my Comicon costume and then playing Age of Empires online with a big group of people. I'm looking forward to a very nerdy weekend. :)
