DANCE, v.i. To leap about to the sound of tittering music, preferably with arms about your neighbor's wife or daughter. There are many kinds of dances, but all those requiring the participation of the two sexes have two characteristics in common: they are conspicuously innocent, and warmly loved by the vicious.

2010 Update: To worship Terpsichore with your arm on the one that brought you.

Ah, ha,ha, ha...snork! You said "tittering".

...with the blessing of Saint Vitus.

Slow dancing is wonderful excuse to be close to someone.

DANCE, v.i. something I am suddenly participating in more often now that we're in an apartment with only one bathroom.

Nessa said...

Strike a pose.

Poor Tuesday

Ariel the Thief said...

The rythm in things. I love to watch because I cannot do. :)

Strike a pose
Strike a pose

... Look around
everywhere you turn
is heartache
It's everywhere that you go
(look around)

You try everything
you can to escape
The pain of life
that you know
(life that you know)...

Vogue said...

... When all else fails
and you long to be
Something better
than you are today
I know a place
where you can get away ...

TLP said...

BTW guys, if you want to get the girls, learn to dance! Women love to dance.

Dancing is the handmaiden of something...

Love watching the Amish try to dance.

"Let us read and let us dance - two amusements that will never do any harm to the world."-Voltaire

If you are not good at it, please do it in private. ;0

Seriously they'd have been better off teaching the world to dance in perfect harmony, we'd be a lot thinner.

I fell in love with our (my) dance instructor on the QM2 last January. She was (light??) as if I was holding a feather in my extended hand, she must have read my mind at my every clumsy turn.
I will never forget her. Mrs. Jim smiles.

Doug The Una said...

You got me, Poobah. No swirlies, please.

Amen, Icy.

TLP, as well as a good reason to get as far away as possible

I can imagine, Quilly, but I prefer not to.

That's not dancing, Nessa!

Ariel, you should teach.'

Vogue, I thought you were Cooper acting up.

TLP, who's stopping them?

Of handmaidenry, Sauerkraut.

Right, Cooper, and if we learned to dance in disharmony, we'd all have mugs like mine.

I bet Mrs. Jim smiles, Jim. Give your coffee a sniff before drinking is my advice.

Ariel the Thief said...

Doug and Jim, I would give that advice to the dance instructor instead!
