Hell, there was a time when I could even disco with the best of them. OK, maybe not as well as John Travolta, but good none the less.
My, how times have changed. Remember when the dance halls didn’t even start really jumping until after 10 p.m. and to be there any earlier would mean you were drunk before the dancing started or a dork or both, and the dancing didn’t stop until the bouncers kicked everyone out?

Wahoo, what a party animal I am now – pathetic, I know, but such is the way of life.

I guess I will never know who dances to what; I can’t stay awake late enough to find out. Do people even dance anymore?
