Sometimes, I still surprise my husband…

Tonight, in TV wasteland (it’s only TV wasteland….) my husband happened upon Saturday Night Fever.  I begged him to please watch something more amusing, such as the Walking Dead, but he was insistent.  I sighed and resigned myself.  Okay, I know how to deal with this, I sez to myself.

Having been a disco inferno – 10 pm – 4 am worshiper at the shrine of disco, I knew what to do.  As soon as the movie went into action, I went with it, scene by scene…swingin’ the paint can, arguing about the bloody pork chop….he was annoyed until this scene started and I matched John step by step, beat by beat.

As soon as it was over, my beloved hit the off button on the remote and said to me:  I knew you did the disco rounds and I’ve seen you dance ballroom, but at 62, you just put Travolta to shame.  I smiled and nodded and said, “and your point?”

He said, you are a dangerous woman – and when I grow up, I want to dance like that.  I shrugged. “My dear, I hope you dance better.”

So…..keep some things secret ladies…and pull out those secrets when they will make the most impact….

I’m still keeping my air guitar impression of Pete Townsend doing Baba O’Reilly for another day.

    I loved this one, Kanzen and I have great images of the scene you set with your husband. I laughed when I clicked on the film to see how young John was and his east coast stiffness. Grin. To contrast that with how he played Michael 19 years later… Love him.

      Indeed yes. and he was a stiffy. Only gay men were smooth and fluid on the East coast back in them degenerate days. Date: Wed, 26 Mar 2014 23:46:54 +0000 To:

        Good point – can’t remember for the California coast scene if the gay men were better… My husband had a move he would do that was just liquid. One time when we were dancing, a woman in her eighties came up to me and said, “He’s a keeper, dear.” and winked at us.

          Love it. A gay friend and I were burning the floor up at one of his cousins’ wedding reception. One of the male cousins came up and asked to dance with me and when we were dancing asked, is he as good in bed as he is on the dance floor? I just gave a wicked grin and said to him, why don’t you give him a chance and see what YOU think? Date: Thu, 27 Mar 2014 00:28:18 +0000 To:
