I know. I'm very surprised and proud of myself. This was definitely out of my comfort zone.
I was also very surprised that I loved it. However, every good night should have an awkward story. This is a good one.
Christina #1 : I’m going to dance with Mike, John you can dance with Kristen.
(Christina #1 and Mike walk away…John and I start to walk to the dance floor)
John: Uggggggggggggggggg. Do you really want to dance? (keep in mind, everything he says sounds angry.)
Kristen: um, yes…do you not want to?
John: I REALLY don’t want to. Christina made me come.
Kristen: Have you never done this before?
John: No, I’ve done it. I just don’t want to.
Kristen: ok…well, we don’t have to dance.
Christina #2 (walks toward us)
John: here comes your friend…Why don’t you dance with her. *
Christina #2: What’s going on?
Kristen: He doesn’t want to dance with me.
John: It’s not you. I just don’t want to dance.
Christina #2: What? Didn’t you pay to come here?
John: Yes, I paid and danced once and I’m… (walks away)
(Christina #2 and I turn down a couple creepy old men and sit this dance out. The next dance John has a dancing partner and is contra-ing.)
yeah. I love my life.
But really, contra was fun. I'll do it again.
*This sentence could use a question mark...but he didn't say it like a question.
