Do you lurk, on the dance floor?

In my BB sack, and EG caps, it feels uncomfortable to bust the move with "drop it like it's hot" . 1 am on the edge, of the dance floor, head against the wall, try to look 1/2 asleep to the others (having fun).I don't know nada, about the merengue.

Cold lurking on the dance floor, and after, go home in defeat and sadness.

Did you?

I find it difficult to dance in proper leather shoes; sneakers are essential. Perhaps your EGs are preventing you from getting down.

I like the wiggliness that leather soles allow, but I try to stay away from places with beer-soaked dance floors.

I find I can only really dance in leather-soled shoes. It makes it a lot easier for spins, turns, and slides.

It's not so much the soles but the inflexibilty of the entire shoe compared to a sneaker. I suppose it depends on the dancing style: certainly in formal dancing (waltzes, etc) leather shoes would be optimal but for club dancing where there is more jumping I think a more flexible shoe is best.

Perhaps, but for the moon walking, I think leather soles are good.

Do you know what kind of shoe James Brown wears?

I agree. It's real tough to do the twist in rubber soles. They squeak.

I am never bothered by dancing in leather or rubber soled shoes. Though in a BB sack it might be hard to drop it like its hot. consider wearing khakis and a polo shirt with a sweater on your shoulders. Penny loafers for added coolness.

If you're into Bukowski, that's poetry, man!

There's a club if you'd like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

This is more or less how I felt, but without wanting to die.

Roma,

I met a Bukowski once, at the beer garden.He spoke like a normal person, to my ear.

Many have been met, by Bukowski at a beer garden. A poet does not always reveal himself, with the first listen.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
