I'm hip, aren't I?
Better? Good. Where was I now?
Oh yeah, my co-worker/friend JJ got married yesterday to his very pretty and oh-so-too-good-for-him girlfriend. They are a young couple on a budget so couldn't invite everyone they've ever met to the wedding and dinner so they invited many of us to come and join them for the party after the dinner. As is to be expected, the bride was stunning and the groom really does clean up well and they were absolutely glowing.
As mentioned before, they are fairly young - well, late twenties anyway - and their friends are in the same age range. They had a cousin of hers doing DJ duty and I have to admit that I didn't recognize most of what he played. The dance music beat was the same for most of the songs and they all kind of blended together very quickly. Oh, and the volume? Ear-splitting. I soon felt kind of old
This is sad since I'm only forty-one. How do you dance to this stuff? I like to think of myself as hip, with-it, up-to-date but those illusions took a serious beating last night. My friend, PC, was showing some good rhythm for a white man closing in on fifty. Why couldn't I look like that? Okay, not the bald part but you know what I mean. Compared to him, I looked like a dying fish flopping around in the bottom of a boat (not a pretty picture!).
Despite the whole twitching fish image, I did enjoy myself and was glad to be there to congratulate the happy couple. The vodka and cranberry drinks probably helped that along ;)
Perhaps PC can give me some dancing lessons sometime. Maybe I'll get out more
