Crush

For a few minutes when I was in high school country dancing got REALLY popular. There is a working farm in Salt Lake with a big barn and they did line dancing every Wednesday night. It wasn't really that cool to like country music but somehow, you got a pass if you were going to Wheeler Farm.

My friend Andrea knew some cute boys from a different high school who we went with a few times. Boys from another school always felt so much cooler then the ratty ones you'd known since six grade AND we were out on a school night. Doesn't get much better than that at 16. We've been joking around that our summer theme has been Teenage Summer what will all the roller coasters and late nights and ice cream eating (not this week!) but I was thinking last night that the thing it's missing is a little country line dancing with the Granger boys...this song was one of my favorites back in the day-I have to see if there is a country bar here in Irish pub central.

ok. so funny! because...i did go to granger h.s., and it was VERY cool all three years to go country dancing AND to like country music. except i spent 3 years lying about my age and i went on tues/thurs. nights to "the bay" and actually became a regular there!!!

hilarious Jane! I wish I could remember any of the names of the boys we went with-i just remember they were new and they were cute ; )

but the Bay! remember how cool it was to sneak in there and then how lame it was once you were really old enough and realized it was half high school kids...ah high school...
