THis is a day I'd rather take off. I'd prefer to go home, take a nap, get up to wash the arms with Zanfel. But I have Jill at four and dancing at 7:30 so I have to tough it through. And tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas, complete with the bed on top of my car and the inside stuffed. Which it isn't, yet, not completely. It will be a tiring trip, I'm betting.

I look forward to seeing Jill and I look forward to dancing. Just right now, though, I feel so tired.

That the dancing wasn't so swell, but I think we are making progress. I am certain that less fortification immediately prior did help.

I was proud that I did not fall down laughing, or make "Grapes of Wrath" analogies when I saw you poor little abused car. I pray for dead calm tomorrow, since any sort of wind might make your trip more exciting than you might prefer.

Re: Sorry
Ah, Paul,
The dancing was the best part. Exceeded my expectations of that day and of you and of the class. It was one of those times I wondered "why doesn't everyone do this??" because it was so fun.

Doing something just for fun. It's astonishing. And learning is a part of the fun, I know, for both you and me.

You may have refrained from dust bowl analogies but Roy didn't. Roy is my kids' father, and he was the one who tied the rope on the stuff (his roomie, the young Leah, helped me load it). Roy even described how the car would be loaded. "Bed on top...grandma in the back, taking care of the baby...A 4F in front, the other brothers are in the service..." There was something about stuff coming out of the trunk, too, or tied to the rear, as I recall.

I had to ask myself if I am too old for this kind of thing. But
barring extremely high winds I think it will be okay. Trouble is, the desert is so known for those winds. I look forward to Tehachapi pass.

Thank you for being there last night.

No, thank you.
I really did enjoy it too, just for the pure pleasure of learning and your company. I am not certain why I set the parking brakes instead of just standing on the regular brakes as we had been doing. Perhaps it is only my hard-bought self-knowledge about inertia.

You have been doing this dating thing far longer than I have. You are doubtless better at it, just like the dancing (more lessons). And just like the dancing, it is something I think I can be good at, even if I am pitiful at present.

Re: No, thank you.
No, I haven't been doing it longer, not really, I don't think. I'm terrible at it. I think we're okay, and we're open, and what else might we want to be? I think we're actually demonstrating some kind of maturity, listening and feeling things out. So novel.

Re: No, thank you.
Well, golly. If you have dated, at all, since 1984, you have been doing it longer. This is a fact, and really shouldn't be in dispute.

As to the rest, I completely agree. It IS novel. Feels good though.
