Report from the Front

This just in from the Homecoming Dance on Saturday night: Freak Dancing is still happening. The Los Angeles Times and are reporting on this issue today, coincidentally.

My take? It's all fun and games until someone feels violated. And that could be me, just watching it.

Chaperoning this situation? It's like sweeping water uphill. Or whacking moles.

If you haven't hit the dance floor in a long while, here's an instructional video (demonstrating that after 9 minutes and 33 seconds, even freaky dancing can be boring). Note: Most kids I know skip the directions and go straight to the "back-to-front" step, adding a little "bend over" with "hands on knees."

Instead of holding dances, just ask all their parents to contribute to a fund and buy hotel rooms for all the kids. Then they can get right to it....
