dance memory……. probably seventh grade, age 13. A “party” arranged by parents at one of their homes. This was in the early ’60’s and in a small Wisconsin farming community. It was a very warm spring night. The event was structured, awkward and the music came from some modest record player. The dining room was cleared away, so the area was small. Each person had to dance, so there was no escape. I stumbled through it, likely bruised some feet and surely bruised my ego. I remember i would rather have been outside playing ball.
