Down on the left margin quite aways on this blog- I have a stake dance re-cap playlist...we were listening to it last night- and of course the girls loved Ice Ice Baby and when Depeche Mode's "Somebody" came on I obviously had to ask Chay to dance. If I saw Chay at a stake dance when we were 15 it would definitely be my idea to dance. He would be attractively shy...and I would be able read him like a book-
so last night while dancing he kindly reminded me, "April, I don't think you'd be dancing with a 14 year old boy this way." oops
um...Stake Dances in my time were basically the coolest thing in the world. Oh and I am not from Utah or am I from a highly populated Mormon area...for some reason highly populated Mormon areas don't appreciate stake dances like we did in Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho...I think church dances might be "not cool" here...and sort of lame...and so is having a wedding reception in the church gym. What is really wrong with burlap walls and a basketball hoop in your pictures anyway? ok...I hated my pictures...but what beats a ward potluck? People still talk about all the delicious food the ward families brought to my reception.
ok back to stake dances. So they were cool...and were basically the weekend highlight. My friends and I would always dress up crazy...and we would dance in a big circle to techno music...and would go out of control when "Love Shack" came on and "YMCA" -and the guys danced too...remember "skaw" music?? The guys loved to dance skaw...
I just got off the phone with Emily and she told me stake dances weren't as cool as I had thought they were and after I left on my mission they became instantly dull...hmmmm and the fact that the group of guys we had crushes on moved away-
so maybe...well still- Stake Dances from the 90's rocked...no matter what they say.
and then there was Jaynee...who is the dancing machine- Joette, Sheri, Taraka, Emily, Leah, who am I missing???
and if you remember a song that I am missing from the playlist...please share.
