Flashback

Got a hold of some old pictures that I had never seen before. This one is a gem from my dancing days. I was (ahem) nineteen. I had been taking dancing for two years. I wanted to take dancing since I was teeny but it never happened. With four kids in our house, probably tap and jazz weren't a big priority eh. So when I got my first part time job (besides babysitting) at seventeen the first thing I did with my first paycheque was walk into a dance studio and plunk down money for lessons. I loved it. I took it all. Jazz, tap, ballet, musical comedy. I went hard and heavy for two years, then once I started university I quit.
Here is moi in "Take Back Your Mink". I am the shortest one with the blonde wig, I did the lead part. Geez, I had fun. And do you notice the ENTHUSIASM of my leg! I was getting my money's worth, by george! I was giving it my ALL!

Wow, I would say you have energy there. You can definitely see your enthusiasm. I agree I wish I had energy again. I long for just 6 hours straight of sleep.
