Dancing was a real drag tonight. The crowd was light, and there weren't that many dancers there.

By about 10:30, there were only four of us left -- one of whom pretty much hadn't danced all night, one of whom only knows about three dances, and another of whom only knows maybe a quarter of the dances. Two dancers a line dance does not make.

I left at 10:40.
