What Does that Make Me?

I like to dance. No, make that love to dance. Tonight I turned the kitchen floor into a dance floor. I asked B2 to locate a song on-line so she could play it for me. I wanted to see if it was what I thought it was. Sure enough.

She played Starry-Eyed Surprise by Paul Oakenfold. I'd heard it on Diet Coke commercials and I instantly liked it.

Since B2 was playing it, I started dancing. Here's the conversation that followed.

B2 - Is that how you dance?

Me - Kind of, I'm probably exaggerating it.

B2 - Ok. Dance like you really would if others were watching.

Me - Sure.

B2 - Is that really how you'd dance?

Me - Probably.

B2 - Well, you're not such a bad dancer but you look so 80's.

Me - Hello!! When do you think I was dancing in the clubs? Honey, I'm a product of the 80's dance era. What can I say?

No reaction from her but laughter.

Here's my next thought....B2 thinks of the 80's as retro. What does that make me?

Ha! I'm sure it was a sight to behold! Tell her it makes her well-rounded to know the hip dances from eras gone by! And that you're just taking your time catching up, enjoying the past!

My kids are always saying how i am stuck in the 80's but of course it doesnt help that DH still has his entire collection of 80's music from high school and i have a book from Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA concert in '85. Although i see a lot of "retro" clothing that i remember wearing in high school just changed slightly....i knew i should have saved my old clothes:)
