square dancing at Waffle House

This is a true story.

Once upon a time, we and some friends of ours had particularly difficult evening and were forced to end it at the only place open at that late hour.  Waffle House.

What does one do at Waffle House? (Is it just "Waffle House" or "The Waffle House?"  It seems if you say "THE Waffle House", it's a little snooty, don't you think?)


That's what we were trying to do. Just have some waffles at Waffle House.  However, we couldn't help but notice that a group of older people came in and they were dressed in crazy toddlerandtiarasdressesforoldpeople the finest square dancing outfits ever.  I'm talking square dancing dresses that are like tutus.

Somehow, a conversation began.

It ended with 20-somethings square dancing with 70-somethings in Waffle House at approximately 2 am.

If you need to have a good laugh, maybe you should hang out with square dancers.  They don't have to be clever or interesting people who can carry on a great conversation.  Just being with them and looking at their outfits will cheer you up instantly.

Better yet, ask them to show you some square dancing moves in the middle of a restaurant.

It may or may not have been one of the best moments of my life.  After all of the stuff you're supposed to say like, meeting my husband or giving birth to my children.  It might not be in the top 10, but it's probably in the top 20.  Does that make me dorky?  I'll have to check my dork-o-meter.
