With that kind of insight into the world of the church dances, how could Jadi — or any other “newbie” — possibly go wrong?
Oakli and I are happy to report that Jadi had a great experience at her first dance. She discovered she was not alone as a first-timer and enjoyed interacting with every member of the ecosystem. She even sought out her chaperoning old man a few times to say hello or giggle-tell a story from the dance floor.
I know there will be plenty more dances in Jadi’s future and she has plenty of time to pass through as many neighborhoods in the delicate ecosystem as she’d like.
I just hope she always has time for a dance with me in frozen foods.
