Main Question or Discussion Point

When I was a kid, my parents would hire a babysitter ~5 years older than me. She would bring over her little Victrola and a small stack of 45's and after she ran my sisters off to bed, she would teach me dance moves that she learned from the TV shows.

Years later, when I was in JHS, she would snag me and "make" me dance with her to older songs. She was a tiny little thing with a curvy butt, so that wasn't much of a chore. To be in the 7th-8th grades with a cute HS cheerleader hauling me out onto the dance-floor... Not such a bad thing.

Are you reminiscing? What brought that on. :)
I never had a hot baby sitter to dance with when I was a kid, let alone a baby sitter.
I now feel neglected. All I had to entertain myself with was a stick. hha ha joke

I had learned about an illness in her family, and it made me think of her. A very sweet young woman. Actually, she's probably 65 now, but that's beside the point. I had some jealous male class-mates back in the 60s at dances.

Dancing? I'm not sure I've heard of this phenomenon. Where can I find such a thing?

But seriously, I've danced only a bit more than I've jumped off bridges. Which I've never done. Some people have two left feet. When it comes to dancing I have no feet.

Oh. And they most likely still are.

Thought of this,
What could've been, should've been, would've have been
With a twinkle the stars decide for all of us
But all my wants and desires
my regrets, my passions
are all a sweet fine mist
with you

This anecdote sounds very familiar. Her name wasn't Fanny was it? :approve:

Nope - Bunny. I think her given name might have been Bernadine/Bernadette. She was always Bunny to me.

Yes I did. She was not a fat bottomed girl, though. Just tiny, cute, and pleasantly curvy.

I know, but the other similarities made it too good to pass up.

I'm 23 and dating a 34 year old, it'll be our one year in a few weeks. Is that relevant to this discussion?

x= y/2 + 7

x=34
y=24

Oooh. You're just outside the acceptable range. Sorry. :frown: Look her up in another two years. You'll be 25 and she'll be 36.

It may be more of a U.K. thing.It's generally seen at family parties where more mature male members get up and dance with an amusing style but which embarasses their children if they are teenagers.You don't have to be a dad or mature to be a dad dancer but ideally you need to be flamboyant and with a total lack of co ordination.

Check, check, and check. I think I could pull it off.

I had a ton of hot baby sitters when I was a kid, unfortunately most of them are married and have kids. I am actually friends with one of them on FB. She just graduated with her PhD as a doctor. She is hot and smart!

I didnt even know there was such a thing as hot chicks when I was of babysitting age - save perhaps for cornish game hens.
