Mama Kat is looking for a first dance memory, but really I only have this memory of one of the last dance's I ever attended during high school.
You see I grew up in a small town (at the time, it is a pretty big suburb now) where we went to dances at these local ballrooms. They sold beer and "set-ups" which were basically soda's in a cup that we then took back to our booths, drank off an inch or so and added whatever liquor we could obtain from an older brother, parent's liquor cabinet or with fake i.d. That night I think it was amaretto...yeah I am a girl.
There were bands at these ballrooms and everyone went when the band was "good" - Dare Force was pretty popular to attend...let's assume it was Dare Force that night.
I had a cocktail, not much, but I was 17 and even a drink probably made me 'squiffy'. The band had not started yet, it was early.
He came into the ballroom and this song came on.
He asked me to dance even though we were not dating.
He sang to me all the while we spun around the floor, just us - no one else, in a crazy display like Daryl Hannah and Aidan Quinn in the movie Reckless.
It was enough. It was over.
